Probation Violation in Nevada County
Speak with Our Criminal Defense Attorneys Now
If the authorities charge you with violating your probation, the court can modify, revoke, or change the conditions of your probation. The court’s action can result in additional restrictions or even jail or prison time. It is important to have a skilled defense attorney at your probation revocation hearing to protect your rights and interests.

How Do Probation Violations Occur?
A judge can place any terms and conditions on your grant of probation that he or she feels are appropriate to your crime. If you violate any of these conditions you may have your probation revoked, which can result in incarceration.
Common probation violations include:
- Failing to pay court fees or restitution
- Failing to appear in court
- Failing to attend or complete court-ordered classes
- Failing to complete any ordered community service
- Failing to meet with your probation officer
- Getting charged with a new crime during your term of probation
- Testing positive for drug or alcohol use
- Violating a restraining order
