An individual can violate probation when they act contrary to the terms that were set when they received their probation sentence. The terms of probation vary depending on the person and the crime that he or she was convicted of committing.

Some common reasons that individuals are charged with a probation violation include:

  • Getting arrested for another offense
  • Committing another crime
  • Not appearing for a scheduled court appearance
  • Failing to meet with a probation officer
  • Possessing, using, or selling illegal narcotics
  • Failing to attend rehab or support groups
  • Not paying required fines or restitution
  • Violating restraining orders
  • Traveling out of state without permission

Violating probation is a serious offense. Typically, if you are arrested for violating probation, your initial probation agreement will be immediately revoked. Instead, the court will impose a new sentence, generally a harsher one. This new sentence may include incarceration, additional fines, extended probation time, harsher restrictions on probation, or other penalties.
