Your Fresno Criminal Defense Attorney for Probation Violation

Probation Violation occurs when someone fails to live up to the terms and conditions of their probation. Doing so can result in fines, extended probation, jail time, or other penalties imposed by the court.

Probation Violation can occur due to a number of activities, depending on the specific terms of an individual’s probation. Some common ways probation is violated include:

  • Not appearing in court.
  • Not reporting to your probation officer.
  • Not paying fines ordered by the court.
  • Not refraining from drug use (and sometimes alcohol).
  • Not attending either drug and/or alcohol recovery meetings.
  • Not staying away from certain places and people.
  • Committing another crime.

California has both informal and formal probation. Someone on informal probation reports directly to the court. Someone on formal probation is supervised by a probation officer.
