How Do Probation Violations in California Occur?
When you are released on parole, there are terms and conditions that you must agree to. A judge can place any terms and conditions on your grant of probation that he or she feels are appropriate to your crime. These conditions must be met or maintained to remain in good standing with the court-ordered agreement. If you violate any of these conditions you may have your Placer County 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
