Violating the conditions of probation can lead to serious consequences. Judges are not so forgiving when persons are given probation and they subsequently violate the conditions of probation. The judge may revoke the person and issue a warrant for their arrest. The judge is not required to set a bond for the person’s warrant. This is when it is necessary to hire an attorney to request that the judge set a bond.
Even a first time violation can cause the person’s probation to be revoked. This is true for both misdemeanor and felony probation. Depending on the seriousness of the violation, the court may decide to either reinstate probation, extend the length of probation, or change the conditions of probation. When severe violations are committed, the judge may even revoke probation and send the person to jail for the remainder of the sentence. In the event that you are revoked, you have the right to challenge the revocation. Contact Alexandria Cazares-Perez for a free consultation.
