Probation Violation

Virginia Beach Probation Violation Lawyer

When Does a Violation of Probation Occur?

In some criminal cases, the court may grant the defendant a term of probation after being found guilty for a crime. This means that the individual will not have to serve their jail or prison sentence as long as they comply with the terms of their probation.

In most cases, an individual on probation must observe the following:

  • Report periodically to a probation officer
  • Stay within a certain radius of a fixed geographical point
  • Obtain and keep steady employment
  • Avoid from any further criminal charges or convictions

Violation of the terms of probation can have two consequences according to the decision of the court:

  1. If probation was granted in lieu of a criminal sentence, the full force of the original sentence could be imposed.
  2. If the individual was granted probation after serving part of their sentence, the remaining term could be reinstated.

There are circumstances where individuals fail to meet the terms of their probation due to a simple mistake or because of circumstances outside of their control.
