There are many situations in which one may be charged with Violation of Probation. Some of the most common Violations of Probation include the following:
- Being arrested on a new charge while on probation
- Failure to report to the probation officer
- Moving without notifying the probation officer
- Failure to comply with conditions of probation, such as, completing Anger Management, alcohol/drug counseling, or paying restitution.
- Failed drug screens and what substance was used by the individual.
The difficulty in resolving a violation of probation charge varies widely based on several factors. Some of these factors include the following:
- The judge/court presiding over the original charge. Probation out of Criminal Court is generally much more complicating than if the person is on probation for a case out of General Sessions Court.
- The individual’s criminal record
- How long the individual has been on probation and if they were compliant for a significant period prior to the violation.
- The number of violations reported by the probation officer. If it is a single violation, it may be easier than if there are multiple alleged violations.
It is important to have an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to handle your Violation of Probation charge. In some cases, the court may agree to put you back on probation, so you want the best lawyer available to pursue the best possible outcome.
