Types of Probation Violations in California

A probation violation can take a variety of forms, but it always involves breaching or refusing to comply with one or more terms of your probation on at least one occasion.

Depending on the stipulations of your probation, the following may constitute a violation:

  • Commission of other crimes, even if they are unrelated to the crime which resulted in your probation

  • Failure to show up for a scheduled court date

  • Use, possession, sale, or other involvement with illegal drugs

  • Failure to meet with your probation officer at a scheduled time and place

  • Being arrested for any offense, even if it is not technically a crime

  • Failure to pay fines related to any crime(s) of which you have been convicted

  • Traveling outside city, county, or state limits, depending on the restrictions of your probation

What are the Penalties for Probation Violation in California?

Any violation of your probation can result in additional sentencing, which may take the form of:

  • Time in jail or prison

  • Extension of your probation period

  • More restrictive probation terms

  • Revocation of your probation, followed by mandatory fulfillment of your original sentence

What Are My Rights After a Probation Violation?

If your probation officer believes you have violated your probation, you may receive an initial warning or be required to appear in court right away. During your hearing, the judge overseeing your case will hear testimony, review evidence, and determine whether you have actually violated your probation or not. If the court determines that you have, you may be subject to any of the penalties listed above.
