Probation Conditions & Violations
Probation by the court will subject you to various restrictions and conditions that differ from case to case. Sometimes these requirements become burdensome and difficult to meet, leaving you in a vulnerable position.
Common probation restrictions can include:
- Regularly meeting with your probation officer
- Avoiding going out of contact (absconding), making it impossible to find you
- Finding and holding a job
- Staying away from certain individuals or locations
- Drug counseling, testing, and treatment programs
- Community service
- Paying restitution to victims
- Avoiding arrest for a new offense
Should you be unable to comply with or fail at any one of the restrictions, you risk a probation revocation which will carry incarceration, possible additional fines, or new criminal charges.
Unfortunately, the standard of proof in a probation revocation hearing is less than that in a courtroom trial. It is not required to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you violated the terms of your probation. Because of this, it is critical that you have a strong legal advocate on your side.
