What to Expect from Your Probation Violation Charges

If this is your first offense, you may simply be issued a warning for a minor violation. Your probation officer may not even make this warning official; it depends on the nature of the violation, your personal officer, and your officer’s understanding of the judge. Serious violations may result in a number of other more inconvenient consequences to be determined at the discretion of either your officer or the judge.

Usually, if the officer has filed your violation, you will be able to attend a hearing to refute the charges. Probation violation charges usually involve: 

  • Missed court dates
  • Failure to pay fines
  • Violating special restrictions of your particular probation
  • Committing a new crime

If you fail a drug test while on probation, your officer can also submit that violation to the court. Most probations also prohibit firearm possession.
