Probation Violations in Los Angeles

In general, to be found guilty of a probation violation your actions or lack of actions must have been willful or substantial.

Examples of probation violations can include:

  • Failing a drug test
  • Failing to pay court costs, fees, or other financial obligations assigned by the court
  • Failing to report to your probation officer
  • Getting arrested for a new criminal offense
  • Failing to work on a public works project as assigned by the court
  • Failing to find or remain in gainful employment
  • Failing to pay restitution to victims
  • Failing to participate in or complete any educational or treatment programs

Probation keeps you out of jail or shortens your time in jail. If you violate the terms of your probation, you will be required to attend a probation revocation hearing with a judge. If the judge finds you guilty, he may revoke your probation and send you to jail for the maximum term allowable under the law.

Other consequences include changing the terms of your probation to make them more severe, such as extending the length of your probation, ordering counseling, ordering community service, ordering substance abuse treatment, or adding other additional terms. The least severe consequence would be the judge merely reinstating your probation with the same conditions as previously ordered.
