What are the consequences of violating probation?

Individuals who are placed on probation have certain court-ordered requirements they must follow. As part of their probation, they may have to meet regularly with a probation officer, pass drug tests, pay fines, attend counseling or complete an education program.

Failure to meet the requirements could result in a violation of probation charge that leads to arrest. An individual could face losing probation, receiving harsher probation terms or having their original sentence reinstated. In some cases, the judge may impose a longer sentence, which is something the person was initially trying to avoid by seeking probation instead of prison.

Individuals who have failed to obey the terms of their probation should contact a skilled attorney as soon as possible. They can act quickly to help reduce penalties and avoid jail time for the violation.
