Probation Violation Classifications
Probation is preferable to a jail or prison sentence, but that does not mean it is easy. There are many ways people can violate probation, including:
- Not completing court-ordered counseling
- Failing a drug test
- Failing to hold a job when court ordered
- Failing to comply with house arrest
- Committing another crime
- Failing to keep in contact with the probation officer
The consequences for violating probation can be surprisingly harsh. The court gave you an opportunity to stay out of jail and you didn’t follow through. Judges take this very seriously and often impose more jail time than the original sentence for such violations.
In addition to jail time, the court can impose stringent new conditions, take away an earlier promise to reduce the level of the conviction upon successful completion of probation or exercise other options as well. In certain felony cases, revocation can result in being sent to prison. You need a strong criminal defense attorney in your corner if you are facing this situation.

….I do believe that God guided me through all the Attorney letters, emails and phone calls to meet you. I must admit that neither the implied consent decision or this last plea agreement came as a surprise, I thank you for that. From day one, you were open and honest about what could happen to me leaving a window of optimism open. I’ve also felt from day one a feeling of comfort knowing that the office of John Leunig cares about his clients far beyond the income they generate for you. …It’s hard to find honesty and sincerity nowadays from anyone, but I’ve found that with you, I appreciate that. I will be advertising your law office to all my friends or anyone I run across in the future. Yes, I’d like to be the CEO of the John Leunig Law Office Fan Club. lol.
Thanks Mr. John Leunig for representing me! I wanted to scream very loudly at the court house but I could not because I was afraid that I may talk in my African language.
