Probation Violations Can Lead To Arrest And Jail Time

As a type of deferred sentencing, probation is your opportunity to serve less than your full sentence if you follow certain conditions. If you fail to abide by those conditions, the police may arrest you and charge you with a probation violation. You may be held without bail until you have an opportunity to see the judge who sentenced you.

If the judge finds that you violated the terms of your felony or misdemeanor probation, he or she may sentence you to serve additional time in jail or to follow additional conditions of probation.

You Must Follow The Conditions f Your Release Exactly

Individuals on probation must follow certain, detailed conditions. From not using mood-altering chemicals to a mandated curfew, they must understand their obligations. When people do not understand those conditions, they are apt to violate them. Probation violations relate to allegations made by probation officers that an individual committed violations such as:

  • Violated a no-contact or restraining order
  • Submitted urine analysis positive for prohibited substances
  • Did not remain in contact with the probation officer
  • Failed to pay a fine or restitution
  • Failed to remain law-abiding

If you are considering moving out of state, make sure you understand your obligations for transferring your probation.
