What constitutes a probation violation?
Often times, an accusation of violating your probation is a misunderstanding or a simple accident on the part of the accused with no intention of violating probation. Our firm can argue you did not purposely violate probation.
Technical violations of probation can include:
- Non-payment of fines
- Curfew violations
- Failed drug tests
- Being out of residence
- Failure to report to a probation officer
- Changes to a residential address without permission
Those found guilty of violating probation will most likely receive added conditions to their probation terms. The probation period can be extended or revoked and the offender can face jail time.
