Serious Penalties for Violating Probation

Probation is part of the punishment for many criminal convictions in California. While the terms of probation may vary widely, you must strictly adhere to the specific terms of your probation. Failing to adhere to the terms may result in serious penalties, such as jail time, prison sentences, and large fines.

Factors that may be considered in probation violation cases include:

  • The nature of the violation
  • Any previous probation violations
  • Recent illegal activity surrounding probationary terms

When probation is violated, an individual may be arrested. In addition, the terms of the punishment may be increased and the time you are on probation may be extended if you are guilty of the alleged violation. In order to avoid the most serious consequences, it is important to take immediate action as soon as you are aware that you allegedly violated your probation.
