Probation is defined as the suspension of a jail or prison sentence, giving to someone who the Judge feels is capable of serving out their sentence at home. When granted probation, the Judge will provide the convicted individual with a set of rules and guidelines that must be followed at all times. In the event that one of these rules is broken, your probation will be violated and you may find yourself facing actual jail or prison time.  Community Corrections is similar to probation, but is more intensely supervised with much more frequent reporting.  There are many different ways Probation or Community Corrections may be violated, including:

  • Failure to Report
  • Failure to Pay Fees
  • Failure to Pay a Fine or Court Costs
  • Failing a Drug Test or Failing to Submit For a Drug Test
  • Failure to Appear in Court
  • Failure to Comply With a Court Order
  • Being Charged with a New Criminal Offense
  • Being a Suspect in a New Criminal Offense
  • Associating With Other People on Probation or Community Corrections
