After being convicted of a crime many peope are sentenced to probation. Probation is literally a sentence where you are not required to spend the time in jail or prison. The Court has discretion to also sentence you to many other terms of probation. If all things go well the Defendant will likely never see his or her judge again. When there is an allegation that the terms and conditions of probation have not been completed a probationer will very likely be brought back to court on a probation violation. This can lead to a long jail or prison sentence.
Probation violations result for the following reasons:
- Failing to report to your probation officer or court
- Failing to appear in court when scheduled
- Failing to pay a fine or court fee
- Failing to comply with a court order
- Failing to submit to a mandatory drug test
- Failing a drug test
- Failing to complete community service
- Committing another offense during your probation
- Associating with other criminal offenders
