Probation Violation Hearing
When a person fails to adhere to the conditions surrounding his/her probation, he/she can be charged with probation violation. Once a person is charged with probation violation, he/she may be arrested, or ordered to go to court for a Probation Violation Hearing. During the hearing, the judge will listen to arguments from the prosecutor, who must prove that probation violation occurred.
If the person is found guilty of probation violation, he/she may be subject to enhanced legal penalties, such as being sent to jail. Probation violations can lead to jail sentences, lengthier probation periods, revoked probation, community service, fines, or further court ordered counseling.
