The terms of criminal probation differ depending on your charges –
misdemeanor or felony. Any violation of court-ordered probation can warrant
a formal probation hearing before a judge. If you have been accused of
violating your probation and need defense representation for your hearing,
contact Orange County Criminal Attorney Virginia Landry.
What is probation in California?
According to § 1203 of the California Penal Code,
"Probation" means the suspension of the imposition or execution
of a sentence and the order of conditional and revocable release in the
community under the supervision of a probation officer.
Probation is often issued by the court as an alternative to a jail sentence.
Probation is granted on the condition that the defendant follows through
with the terms of their probation. If you have been accused of violating
your probation, you could simply receive a warning, the terms of your
probation can become more severe, or your probation can be revoked entirely
and the judge can sentence you to jail.

There are multiple ways you can violate your California probation, including:
