Penalties for Violating Probation
Penalties for violating probation will differ greatly on a case by case basis. If you were given probation for a minor drug offense, the repercussions of failing to fulfill your requirements will be much less severe than someone with a more serious conviction, but there are still consequences. Courts have the discretion to order incarceration, counseling, restitution, and several other court ordered penalties to punish those who fail to comply with their terms of probation. If unprepared and uninformed, those facing charges for probation violation can make mistakes resulting in penalties that could have easily been avoided.
