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.
