Probation is a punishment in lieu of incarceration. Probation can be violated in various ways, including failure to pay a fine, failure to report to your probation officer, failure to appear in court, failure to complete community service or rehabilitation, and failure to abstain from committing crimes.
If you have violated your probation, you will be subject to a probation hearing to determine if you are in violation and what penalty will be imposed. Penalties can include community service, extension of your probation period and even incarceration. A skilled attorney from Amabile & Burkly, P.C. can help you by advocating for your rights.
