Consequences of Violating Probation

Probation comes with numerous rules that you must adhere to, under the supervision of a probation officer. This includes scheduled, regular meetings to check in, random drug tests, and possible orders to attend counseling or other rehabilitation programs. Any violation of these rules and you could find yourself back in jail, or under the watchful eye of your officer for an extended period of time.

Common examples of probation violations include:

  • Failure to meet with your probation officer as scheduled
  • Failure of a random drug test
  • Failure to attend ordered counseling, rehabilitation, or anger management
  • Having contact with known criminals or others you were ordered to avoid
  • Failure to perform community service
  • Leaving a mandated geographical limit

Probation violation can result in the following penalties:

  • Mandatory community service
  • Ordered participation in a drug or alcohol rehabilitation program
  • Counseling for perceived underlying mental or emotional factors
  • Additional fines to the court or alleged victim
  • Possible additional jail time
  • Increased period of probation
  • Revocation of probation and return to jail to carry out sentence
  • Additional criminal charges
Know Your Rights

Probation officers generally have authority and discretion over issuing a warning or imposing certain consequences after a technical violation, however for more serious accusations and consequences, you will likely be reported to the court and required to attend a probationary hearing. You are entitled to representation during this hearing, who can help you bring evidence and testimony for your defense.

With Koch, Degn & Gomez LLP Attorneys at Law on your side, we can help you build a personalized and aggressive defense to keep you out of jail and maintain your probationary integrity. Common defenses include proving that the violation did not happen or providing lawful explanations for your actions. For example, the terms of your probation may have required that you stay within certain city limits, but an emergency required your presence elsewhere.
