Once you have been convicted of a crime, you may be put on probation rather than being incarcerated or you may be allowed probation after serving a portion of your sentence in either jail or prison. Probation often comes with a series of conditions that you must follow in order to maintain your probation. If you do not adhere to the court ordered conditions, you may be accused of a probation violation. Some examples of probation violations can include:
- Being arrested for another crime.
- Failing to fulfill court ordered community service.
- Failing to fulfill court ordered counseling or rehabilitation.
- Missing a court appearance.
- Failing to keep an appointment with your probation officer.
- Not informing your probation officer about any change of address or contact information.
