Common Probation Violations

Probation is most often granted to first-time offenders and non-violent criminals. In some cases, defendants can serve a full sentence as probation and avoid jail altogether. However, they must obey many rules set by the court. Each probationer is assigned a probation officer to monitor their compliance. This officer has the right to request a hearing if he or she suspects that probationer has violated any of the terms. Sometimes, the officer will let his or her charge off with a warning for a minor offense. These warnings are recorded. Too many of them can also result in a probation violation hearing.

Some common probation violations include:

  • Failing to report to a probation officer
  • Failing a drug test
  • Possessing a firearm
  • Failing to serve required community service
  • Failing to pay fines or fees
  • Being arrested for another offense
  • Refusing to attend treatment or programs as required
  • Traveling outside of set boundaries
  • Violating a restraining order
