Virginia Beach Probation Violations
Let Us Defend Your Rights and Freedom
Probation is considered a better sentencing alternative to serving time
in prison. Therefore, if a person is considered to have violated his or
her probation, the law is likely to take away that better sentence. Those
who violate probation could end up with harsher penalties than the original
offense called for.
If you’re facing a probation violation charge, talk to our skilled
Virginia Beach criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

Types of Probation Violation
Common types of probation violation include failing to appear in court,
failing to report to a probation officer, failing to pay court-ordered
fines, and getting arrested for another offense. Likewise, probation terms
also have orders you must follow. For example, you are not allowed to
possess a firearm, use an illegal substance, or leave the state. If you
don’t follow the orders of your probation, your probation officer
could report you have violated the terms of your probation.
If you are convicted of violating your probation, you could face a longer
probation period, have additional terms on the probation order, serve
some time in jail, or have your probation revoked and serve the remaining
time in prison.
Let Us Defend You Against This Charge
To be charged with probation violation, the prosecution must provide evidence
of the crime. Likewise, the violation must have been intentional or caused
by severe carelessness. Mistakenly violating your probation is a common
defense your attorneys might use. Let our skilled criminal lawyers use
