Federal probation tends to be better supervised and much harder on probationers. The Federal Government has the resources to watch their proabationers closely and even the slightest infraction could result in a violation. If you are on Federal Probation and believe that you may be violated, do not hesitate. Contact us as soon as possible. If you are violated, you may face serious jail time or an extension of probation. Probation officers will not tolerate a probationer that they feel is not living up to hise end of the bargain.

Probation violation occurs when a person fails to adhere to the terms of his/her probation. When a person does not comply with the terms of his/her probation, he/she may be punished with the maximum sentence for the crime in which he/she was placed on probation for committing.

After a person is placed on probation, he/she is allowed to return to his/her home environment instead of jail. In order for a person to successfully complete the terms of his/her probation, he/she must follow the rules that were set forth by the court at the time he/she was sentenced. Once a person has been placed on probation, he/she may have to report to a corrections officer on a regular basis, or complete community service activities. If a person fails to complete the terms of his/her probation, he/she can be charged with probation violation by California law enforcement.

Violation Legal Penalties

Once a person is convicted of probation violation, he/she may be sentenced with:

large fines
community service
longer terms of probation
drug testing

If the defendant committed another criminal offense while on probation, or if the defendant has violated his/her probation before, he/she may be subject to enhanced criminal charges and sentencing if convicted. Due to the life-altering legal consequences that are involved, it is always in a person’s best interest to obtain the services of a criminal defense attorney who has the legal background and knowledge it takes to successfully fight probation violation charges.
