While serving your probation period, you will be held to a certain set of rules and conditions set forth in your probation agreement. What counts as an Arizona probation violation is very dependent on the type of offense, the terms of your probation agreement(s), the type of violation, and your needs for treatment.
If you violated probation, you could end up serving time in jail, paying additional fines, or seeing a longer and more intensive probation agreement put into place. As Tempe criminal lawyers, we can tell you that it is likely any of the following could constitute a probation violation in Tempe, although it is far from an exhaustive list:
- Committing another crime
- Using illegal drugs
- Failing to appear for court hearings or meetings with the probation officer
- Leaving the state
- Not completing or attending ordered treatment programs
- Failing to pay required fines
