Phoenix Probation Violation Attorney
Arrested for Violating Your Probation?
Sometimes when a person is convicted of a crime, one of the sentences the judge may impose is probation. Probation is the suspension of a jail sentence. With probation, instead of having to serve out your sentence in jail you are permitted return to your normal life as long as you adhere to the terms of your probation.
If you successfully abide by the terms set forth by the judge at the end of your probation you will be free to carry forth with your life. However, if you violate any of the terms of your probation you will be required to appear back in court and likely face additional legal consequences.
Ways to Violate Probation
Probation violations occur anytime a person violates the terms of probation outlined by the judge. These terms set rules and guidelines that must be abide by throughout the duration of the probation sentence.
Some of the most common types of probation violations include:
- Committing other criminal offenses while on probation
- Associating with other criminals
- Spending time in locations prohibited by the judge
- Failing to check in with the judge or probation officer
- Failing to appear in court at a schedule date and time
