Lynnwood Probation Violation Attorney

What is Probation And How Is It Violated?

One of the sentences that a judge may impose when someone is convicted of a crime is probation, the suspension of a jail sentence. The probation may be the only sentence imposed or it may be tacked onto the end of a jail sentence as further punishment.

When probation is imposed, you are permitted to return to your everyday life as long as you adhere to certain restrictions and requirements. Should you not follow the restrictions and requirements, then a violation of the probation results and you are likely to stand before the judge again to face additional consequences and charges, including possible jail time. If this occurs it is vital that you contact a Lynnwood criminal defense attorney immediately.

Some of the types of probation violations are:

  • Failure to report to a Probation Officer in a timely manner as required by the court
  • Committing a crime while on probation, such as DUI
  • Failure to comply with court ordered requirements of the probation such as attending drug rehabilitation or paying a fine or restitution
  • Associating with known criminals or groups while on probation
