Virginia Beach Probation Violations

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.

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.

Penalties

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.
