Probation Violations

Support for When You Violate the Terms of Probation

Due to the strict nature of most probation terms, it is easier than you might think to risk a violation to the terms of your supervision. The most common probation violations in Ohio include:

  • Not paying court fines
  • Being late to or missing a probation meeting
  • Not completing a court-ordered class
  • Missing or failing an alcohol or drug test
  • Failing to register as a sex offender
  • Not reporting a change of employment status
  • Changing your address without permission
  • Associating with known criminals
  • Being convicted for a new offense

Have You Been Charged with a Probation Violation?

No matter how minor the violation may be, the court does not look kindly on those who break the terms of their probation. In Ohio, prosecutors are only required to present minimal evidence against you. If convicted, a judge can rule that you serve the remainder of your sentence in jail and even add time to your original sentence. The best strategy for avoiding such harsh penalties is to call on a dedicated criminal defense attorney.
