Probation Violations

Orange County Probation Criminal Defense Attorney

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.

Ways You Can Violate Your Probation

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

  • Failure to appear in court
  • Missing a meeting with your probation officer
  • Failure to pay a fine or victim restitution
  • Failure to attend court ordered treatment
  • Being arrested for the alleged commission of a crime
