What Happens if I Were to Violate Probation?
So if a defendant’s been sentenced and they’re now on probation and not in custody, he or she is expected to comply with all the terms of probation. So those terms could include drinking alcohol, not possessing a firearm, not committing a new crime, failing your analysis test or failing to appear when required. If someone does not meet these terms, the probation officer can then file what’s called a petition to revoke probation. And in addition, the probation officer can issue an immediate warrant for that person’s arrest. That person could then be arrested and held non-bondable until the probation violation proceeding is finalized.
