How Is Probation Violation Punished?
Depending on the severity of the charge, if you are found to have violated the terms of your probation or community control, you will likely be facing jail or prison time, in addition to a conviction that may result in you being designated as a convicted felon for the rest of your life. Additionally, you could be facing a revocation, where the terms of your probation are revoked or you are given an increased term.
In most cases, an arrest warrant will be issued. Jail time can be a severe sentence given to individuals for breaking probation protocols and is the reason that such cases must be handled with tough precision by lawyers who are looking out for their community.
In order for a violation of probation to stand, the presiding judge must find that the accused “willfully and substantially” failed to comply with the terms and conditions of their probationary sentence.
Whether a violation was both "willful and substantial" in nature depends on the facts of each case, and only an experienced attorney knows whether or not the State can meet this burden.
Common probation violation issues include:
- Failing to report to your probation officer
- Missing a restitution payment
- Missing or failing a drug test
- Not completing community service
- Owning or possessing a firearm
- Committing a new criminal offense
It is critical to have a criminal defense lawyer that can challenge your alleged probation violation and require the state to prove that you willfully and substantially violated the terms of your probation.
