Understanding Probation Violation Offenses

We know that being charged with a Probation Violation is a stressful and horrifying experience. It is not uncommon for law enforcement to make mistakes in this area of law. If you have been sentenced to probation, you may have avoided confinement, or served a greatly reduced sentence of confinement, and remain under the jurisdiction of the court for the duration of your probationary sentence.  

When you enter into a probationary sentence, certain terms and conditions of probation apply; sometimes, these conditions appear in the paperwork you sign in court when you enter the plea, and sometimes these conditions are later explained to you by your probation officer.  A violation of any of these conditions typically will result in a petition to revoke your probation.  However, in some circumstances, probation officers will for whatever reason choose not to file a petition to revoke if the violation is relatively minor.  This may depend largely on the nature of the charges for which you are on probation, as well as your relationship with your probation officer.

There are two types of probation violations: a technical violation, or a violation due to picking up a new offense.  A technical violation would be something like missing a probation appointment, failing to complete community service, or falling behind on restitution payments.

We will carefully review all the details of your case, in order to get the best possible outcome for your Probation Violation case.
