If you are currently serving probation for a criminal offense, you need to understand the common types of Arizona probation violations and the consequences associated with a violation. Probation is a better option than prison, and you need to do everything you can to avoid violating it.

Eight common probation violation scenarios
There are several things that could violate your probation, such as:

  • Leaving the jurisdiction without the appropriate approval
  • Failing to return to the jurisdiction by the appointed time
  • Contacting a person who has issued an order of protection against you
  • Participating in another crime
  • Failing to report to your probation officer
  • Not passing a drug test
  • Failing to attend any court-ordered treatment programs or courses, such as anger management or AA
  • Failing to pay any court-ordered restitution

Consequences of a probation violation
If you violate your probation you could be subject to:

  • Having your probation revoked
  • Having your original sentence invoked
  • Immediate jail time

If you are facing possible probation or have had a bench warrant issued against you for violating your patrol, speak with one of our experienced criminal defense attorneys. You can also order our free book, Arizona Criminal Law - What You Must Know.

If you have been accused of committing a crime, contact one of our Arizona criminal defense attorneys at the law firm of Curry, Pearson & Wooten, PLC by calling 602-258-1000 or toll free at 1-888-9AZLAWCOM (888-929-5292).
