What Are Probation Violations?
There are many ways to violate probation, a few common reasons include:
- Missing a scheduled court appearance
- Driving while intoxicated
- Not paying fines or restitution to victims as ordered
- Involvement with drugs
- Not reporting to your probation officer
- Traveling out of state without telling your probation officer
- Getting arrested for any offense, even for traffic violations
In some instances, there is no way to deny that a probation violation occurred. In those cases, I pursue a strategy of asking, “Where does the court go from here?” There is always hope in a probation violation case, and I will use every legal tool to get you the best possible outcome for your potential violation.
