Probation violation charges cannot be taken lightly. If you are found guilty of violating your probation, you will be facing the maximum sentence for the crime for which you were placed on probation initially. Probation is a court-ordered requirement when you’ve been found guilty of a misdemeanor crime, although in some cases, you may have had a felony conviction.
Regardless of how long is remaining of your probationary period, a violation that results in a guilty finding will mean you could serve the full sentence for the underlying crime. Violations include missing an appointment with your probation officer, failing a drug test, being charged with another crime, or traveling out of town without clearing such travel with your probation officer. The court typically will inform you of all the conditions of your probation when they defer your sentence. Remember, these are not recommendations, they’re court orders and must be followed.
