Probation is often the punishment for a misdemeanor or felony conviction. It is sometimes also ordered by the court following the conclusion of a jail sentence. When on probation, you are required to comply with all terms set by the court and your probation officer to complete your term of probation successfully. A probation violation can happen if you fail to appear at court or scheduled meetings, fail to pay fines or restitution as required, fail to perform community service, or if you fail a drug test. If you are charged with another crime during your probation period, this will also constitute a violation. Violating any term of your probation can result in a warrant for your arrest, having your probation suspended or revoked, and could even lead to you receiving the maximum sentence allowed by law. But, every case is different; therefore, it is important to seek legal counsel immediately.
