What constitutes a probation violation?
When a criminal defendant is on probation, he or she must follow the rules of the
probated sentence. If the defendant violates the terms of probation, a probation
violation occurs, which may result in a probation revocation and jailtime. Probation may
be violated in many ways; the most common types of probation violations are:
  • Failure to pay  
  • Failure to appear
  • Violation of terms of probation
  • Violation of special conditions
  • Violation of general conditions
  • Failure to report to probation
  • Committing crimes or being arrested
When Probation is Violated
An arrest warrant may issue thereafter, and the probationer may be ordered to appear
at a probation violation revocation hearing. There are several factors that the courts
consider when hearing a probation violation, including:
  • The seriousness of the probation violation
  • The nature of the probation violation
  • The history of previous probation violations
  • New criminal activity surrounding the probation violation
  • Aggravating and mitigating circumstances of the probation violation
  • The probation officer and/or probation department's view of the probation
Consequences of Probation Violation Revocation
If you have violated your probation, the court may order an amendment of your
probation terms, possible
prison or jail time, and revocation of first offender status.
