West Palm Beach Probation Violations
Did you violate the terms of your probation?
Probation is a form of sentencing that is ordered by the court instead of jail time and other harsh penalties. It often includes certain conditions and actions that need to be carried out by the defendant, such as:
- Taking regular drug tests
- Showing up at scheduled meetings with your probation officer
- Paying fines and court fees
- Making restitution
- Maintaining employment
- Attending school
If you violate the terms of your probation or are arrested for another criminal offense, you can be charged with probation violation. A hearing will then be held to determine the status of your probation. The judge can decide to set new conditions to your existing probation, increase the amount of time you must remain on probation, or revoke your probation.
If the court rescinds your probation, you will be sent to jail to complete your original sentence. Depending on the reason for the violation, you may also be facing new criminal charges. If you have been charged with probation violation, legal representation by a qualified West Palm Beach criminal defense lawyer will improve the chances of a successful outcome to your case.
