Charged with Violating Probation? Call (918) 721-0998!
When someone is given probation violation instead of a harsher punishment, such as jail time or heavy fines, it is considered a privilege. This is why if someone violates any of the terms or restrictions involved in their probation, the penalties one could face are significant—and often harsher than the penalties for the original offense.
If you have been accused of committing probation violation, we can defend you! Saint & Watzke, PLLP has a results-driven approach and we do not stop fighting until we help you find the right solution.
When Is Probation Violated?
Probation violation laws will differ with each county and every courtroom. When issuing the sentence, the judge will evaluate various factors, including the severity of the offense, before deciding on the terms. Probation violation occurs when the individual has failed to abide by the terms, ignored the directions, or completely broken the rules during the probation term.
- Some examples of probation violation include:
- Failing to appear at a scheduled court appearance
- Failing to keep appointments with the probation officer
- Disregarding the fines or compensation to be paid to victims, if court-ordered
- Traveling to or visiting places where one is not allowed to go, or without permission
- Using, selling, or being in possession of illegal drugs
- Committing another criminal offense during the probation period
- Getting arrested for any reason, regardless if it is a criminal case or not
