Consequences of Probation Violation
Probation is varied and complex. It can include rules like check-in meetings with probation officers, drug testing, mandatory counseling, rehabilitation classes or programs, and even personalized requirements. Violation of probation rules can mean further, more stringent probation, or even being sent back to jail.
Common Probation Violations:
- Missing probation officer meetings
- Failing drug testing
- Failure to complete counseling, training, rehabilitation, or anger management classes
- Fraternization with criminals, accomplices, or other individuals with whom you were not supposed to see.
- Incomplete court-ordered community service
- Traveling beyond a specified geographical limit
Potential Penalties for Probation Violation:
- Increased community service
- Mandatory participation in rehabilitation programs
- Fines to court and/or alleged victim
- Jail time
- Longer probationary period
- Criminal charges
Know Your Rights
If you are on probation, your rights can sometimes be confusing. For minor or technical violations, your probation officer will likely issue warnings or level interim consequences. If the violations are more serious, probation officers will likely report the violations to the court. This means a probationary hearing, to which you may bring your own defensive representation.
Koch, Degn & Gomez are ready and willing to be your legal advocates in any allegations or hearings regarding probationary violations. We understand that the rules are complicated, and that often your rights are trampled in the justice system. Our criminal defense team can utilize over 40 years of experience to keep you out of jail with sound and aggressive defense. Common examples of defense against probation violations are proving that the probation was never violated at all or giving lawful exceptions for actions alleged as violations.
