Probation Violations

Everyone who has ever been on Community Supervision, also known as Probation, knows that an additional arrest on any charge is a probation violation, and will almost certainly result in revocation of the probation. Not everyone understands that other types of probation violations are often just as serious, including:

  • Not doing court-ordered community service and programs
  • Not reporting to your probation officer (PO) on time or Failure to Report
  • Failed urinalysis (dirty UA, tested dirty) and failure to submit to drug tests
  • Unapproved travel
  • Losing a job
  • Associating with the wrong crowd
  • Accusations of violence while on probation, such as assault or domestic abuse

These probation violations can result in a motion to revoke probation.
