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
- 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
- Having additional terms added on the probation order
- Serving some time in jail
- Having your probation revoked and serving the remaining time in prison
