Probation Violation Laws  

Probation is given out on humanitarian grounds to prevent first time offenders from getting serious imprisonment punishments. In these cases, the person’s movement or activity is constantly surveyed and in some cases seriously restricted. A person will not have to serve the sentence in prison. Instead, he/she will have to adhere to certain rules and regulations outside prison.

Each person is placed under a probation officer, who constantly monitors the person’s activities and will immediately catch anyone offending the court’s directive. The offender has to report to the probation officer periodically. Failing to meet the officer will also make the offender punishable under law.

Given below is a list of conditions that would make a person punishable for violating probation laws:

Violating the restriction orders: In some cases, the person’s movements could be restricted for a stipulated period of time. In other cases, the person would not be eligible to change his company or job without prior notification to the officer. Failing to follow these orders will be considered a potential violation. The frequency of committing the mistake and the attitude of the offender will also be taken into consideration while deciding the next course of action.

The offender will be asked to appear in court and explain for violating the order. Failing to give a satisfactory reason could amount to a short term in prison or paying a hefty fine.

In numerous cases, the jail term is less than a year. The person can be released prior to completing the jail term if his/her behavior improves over time.

In cases of serious and repeated violation, the person will be sentenced to prison by revoking the probation orders.
