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.
