What Happens If I'm Guilty of Violating Probation?
Probation violations can result in your probation being cancelled and sometimes, prison sentences can even be extended. The penalties for violating one's probation can vary greatly depending on the circumstances.
Some examples of consequences for probation violation can include:
- Extending your probation term
- Jail time
- Revoking your probation
- Community service
Depending on what was done, the severity of the penalty will be assigned. There are no set rules of what penalties must be assigned when probation is violated. The probation officer is given discretion to weigh all the factors and decide what to do. One of your legal rights is to have attorney representation. It is strongly advised that you take advantage of this right for your chance at the best possible outcome.
