Violating your probation could earn you many potentially detrimental consequences that could have lasting negative effects on your life. If you are found to be in violation of your probation, you can be issued an arrest warrant without prior warning – meaning you could be taken into the custody of law enforcement officers at any time. If you are convicted of a probation violation, you can face substantial fines, possible jail time, having your probation revoked or extended, and losing your freedom. It’s not something you want to take lightly.
There are several possible ways to violate your probation, which you may or may not be aware of. You can be charged with violating your probation if you:
- Fail to complete a court ordered class or program
- Failing to appear in court as scheduled
- Being arrested while on probation
- Committing another crime while on probation
