Formal Probation and Probation Violations in Orange County

Probation is granted to certain criminal offenders after they serve a certain amount of time in jail or in lieu of incarceration, allowing them to remain in society as long as they observe certain rules and follow terms of their probation. This may include reporting to their Probation Officer once a month, abstaining from drugs and alcohol, attending counseling or classes, avoiding criminal charges and arrest during the probationary period, and more. When a defendant fails to observe or willfully neglects these terms, he or she may face immediate arrest and criminal charges. Some common forms of a probation violation include:

  • Failure to report to Probation Officer
  • Arrest for another crime
  • Failure to attend counseling or classes, as outlined in the terms of probation
  • Failure to pay a fine or pay restitution to a victim
  • Possession of illegal drugs or weapons
  • Association with known criminals
  • Coming into contact or attempting to contact the victim (violating a restraining order)
