In the eyes of the judges and law enforcement officials, probation is seen as a courtesy. Instead of serving time in jail for a criminal offense, convicted offenders may instead be sentenced to probation, where they are free to get back to their lives and rejoin their community.  When people violate their probation, the courts take it very seriously. If you have violated your probation, it’s important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you contact a reputable Orange County probation violations attorney like Mark Devore, the sooner the proper steps can be taken to resolve this issue quickly and efficiently.

Probation is an alternative sentence to jail. Instead of spending time behind bars, you are free to get back to your normal life as long as you comply with the terms of your probation.  Failure to meet any of the rules and regulations of your probation is considered a probation violation.  

Depending on the terms of your probation, there are a variety of actions that could be considered a violation, such as:

  • Failure to complete a court-mandated rehabilitation or treatment program
  • Failure to report to your probation officer
  • Failure to abstain from drugs or alcohol
  • Failure to pay a fine, court fee, or restitution
  • Failure to report for drug/alcohol testing or appear for a progress report
  • Failure to stick to curfews and geographical boundaries
  • Associating with criminals, or with witnesses and victims from your case
  • Committing a new offense or getting arrested
  • Unlawfully possessing weapons

A probation violation can result in a number of consequences, the most upsetting of which is getting sent back to jail or even state prison. However, just because you are accused of violating your probation does not necessarily mean you will be sent back to jail. The court considers many factors before sending you back to jail for a probation violation, such as if you were acting in good faith, how many prior offenses are on your record, and how and why you violated the terms of your probation.
