Violating the conditions of your 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 you and issue a warrant for your arrest. The judge is not required to set a bond for your 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 your 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 your probation, extend the length of your probation, or change the conditions of your probation. When severe violations are committed, the judge may even revoke your probation and send you to jail for the remainder of your sentence. In the event that you are revoked, you have the right to challenge the revocation. Contact Alexandria Cazares-Perez for a free consultation.
