Court ordered probation offers you the opportunity to stay out of jail and provides a chance of a fresh start. The terms of probation are often strict and violation is not uncommon.
The consequences of violating probation are serious and involved, making it much more difficult to make your charges a thing of the past. Situations in which probation violations occur include:
Committing another crime
Failure to pay a fine
Failing a drug test
Failure to abide by a court or probationary order
Failure to check in with your probation officer
