General Criminal Defense Information

Topic: Violation of Probation Defense

An accusation of a violation of probation is when you have been accused of failing to meet either the technical or substantive terms of your awarded probation. It is important to understand that when an individual is accused of a violation of probation they are not being charged with a new crime.

A proven violation of probation may result in handing down penalties according to the sentencing guidelines of the underlying crime the you were originally convicted of.

A technical violation of probation may include:

  • Changing your address without permission
  • Failure to pay court costs or fines
  • Failure to appear for a probation meeting
  • Being late to a probation meeting
  • Failure to complete court-ordered classes.

A substantive violation of probation is when you are accused of committing a new crime, which may void your probation, causing you to not only be tried for the new crime, but also be awarded new penalties for the crime you were originally awarded probation for.
