Take a close look at the probation violation process

The process of fighting a probation violation is similar to fighting any other criminal charge. Here’s what you can expect after you’ve been charged:

  • You’ll be arraigned in court—during the arraignment, the court will put the defendant on notice of what the violation is and the potential penalties they face if found guilty. The punishment for a probation violation is the maximum penalty for the underlying conviction the defendant is on probation for.
  • You can enter a plea—a defendant can plea to the violation or challenge the violation in a contested hearing.
  • You’ll be found guilty or acquitted—a defendant is found guilty on the violation or acquitted. The defendant is sentenced if found guilty.
