Defense Against Probation Violations

When an individual is granted probation in lieu of jail or prison time, or after serving a portion of his or her original sentence, there will be specific requirements demanded of the convicted individual. The probation terms could include scheduled court appearances, mandatory drug or alcohol treatment programs, random drug testing, community service, restraining orders, electronic monitoring, behavioral treatment classes and attending regular meetings with probation officers. Any violations of the terms of probation will lead to an individual having his or her probation revoked, and having a bench warrant issued allowing for an immediate arrest. The individual may be required to complete the remainder of the sentence in jail or prison, with added time for the violation in many cases.

Not all probation violations are intentional. Some are inadvertent errors that could very easily lead to you losing your right to remain free and out on probation.
