What Happens When You Violate Probation?

What if someone breaks probation? Are you automatically sent to jail? These are questions often playing on people’s minds in a probation situation. Probation violations happen when you break the conditions or terms of your probation. 
If you violate them, you will receive a warning or request to appear in court. In court, a judge will determine if the probation was violated. A sentencing judge will hear your case and decide what was violated. Get the help you need for probation violation with our team today.

How Probation Can Be Violated

Some situations that could lead to a probation violation include not appearing for a scheduled court appearance, not reporting to your probation officer or drug possession.
