Houston Lawyer Fighting for Your Freedom
If you are ‘on paper’ or if a family member has been placed on probation, it is vitally important to preserve that status. A violation of the terms of probation can result in having to serve the entire suspended sentence and may involve additional penalties, depending upon the nature of the offense.
Once a person is placed on probation, any future arrest will almost certainly result in a violation. Other types of probation violation include:
- Not completing court-ordered classes or community service
- Failure to report to your probation officer (PO) at the scheduled time
- Failed urinalysis (dirty UA)
- Loss of employment
- Association with known criminals
- An accusation of domestic violence or assault and battery while on probation
- Being found with a weapon (felon in possession of a firearm)
