Types of Probation Violations
When an individual is released from being detained and is put on probation, there are various requirements that a judge can order. A probation violation occurs when any one of these conditions is broken.
Common examples of probation violations include:
- Failing a drug test
- Committing another crime
- Failing to meet family responsibilities
- Possessing a firearm or other dangerous weapons
- Failing to attend all scheduled meetings with a probation officer
- Associating with known criminals
- Failing to complete community service hours
- Leaving a particular geographic area
- Failing to pay court costs and fines from the original sentence
- Failing to obtain employment or pursue vocational training
What are the Penalties for Violating Probation?
Falling short in any of the above ways could result in a number of severe consequences. This might even include revoking the probation and sending the defendant to jail to serve the rest of his or her sentence. However, not all violations warrant sending the individual to jail. If the infraction is minor, a parole officer may choose only to issue a warning.
