Re-arrest and Probation Violations

Criminal Defense Attorney in Orange County

Probation is a common criminal penalty for misdemeanor crimes, but violating the terms of your probation can lead to heavy penalties. Simply put, probation refers to a supervised period of time implemented by the court after an individual is released from jail. Some sentences do not include any incarceration, only a period of probation. First-time DUI offenders, for instance, are likely to receive probation as part of their sentence.

What happens if I fail to meet my probation requirements?

The probation requirements and consequences of breaking them differ between each case and individual. Additionally, the penalties for violating probation depends on and the unique circumstances of the case and the discretion of the judge. Common violations include:

  • Failing to Appear in Court
  • Failing to Pay Fines
  • Failing to Pay Restitution
  • Failing to Meet with Probation Officer
  • Failing to Attend Drug / Alcohol Treatment

Regardless of the violation, you will face a re-arrest for disobeying the terms of your probation agreement. Simply put, a re-arrest occurs when law enforcement brings you before a judge to re-evaluate the terms of your probation. If, for example, you agreed to enter a treatment program for DUI, a probation violation could allow the judge to revoke the agreement and sentence you to jail instead.
