Orange County Probation Violations Attorney

When an individual is convicted of committing a felony or misdemeanor crime, he/she may be sentenced to probation. Probation is basically a way to suspend a prison sentence without having to serve any jail time.  Individuals placed on probation are free to return to their homes and communities instead of serving the remainder of their sentence in prison.

If an individual breaks any of the rules outlined in his/her probation sentence, it is considered a probation violation.  Because probation is an effort to keep convicted individuals out of more trouble, the rules and regulations are strict. Unfortunately, people still commit probation violations constantly. Common types of probation violations include:

  • Possession of illegal drugs or firearms
  • Not adhering to probation rules (i.e. not reporting to probation officer, associating with criminals, hanging out in prohibited locations, substance or alcohol use, etc.)
  • Committing a (new) crime while still on probation for a previous crime
  • Failure to appear in court for a progress report
  • Failure to pay a fine
  • Failure to attend or complete mandatory community service or rehabilitation programs
  • Failure to pay restitution or compensation

When individuals are found guilty of violating their probation, the judge will evaluate the severity of the violation, and impose penalties accordingly. If the violation was minor, an individual could get off with a strict warning. Usually however, guilty individuals face a number of harsher consequences including:

  • Jail time
  • Extended probation
  • Addition of stricter terms to existing probation sentence
  • Mandatory counseling, workshops, treatment programs, or rehabilitation
  • Community Service
  • Cal Trans
  • Reinstatement into probation program
