If you’ve been convicted of a crime, even if you took a plea, you were likely given conditions of probation, rules to follow until your monitoring period ends.
If you failed to comply with those rules, by picking up new charges, violating a restraining order, even testing positive for drugs or alcohol, you will have to go before a judge to address your actions.
Judges look at everything. Depending on the underlying charges, the nature of the violation and looking at your record as a whole, the judge will make a ruling, deciding whether to give you another chance, or to send you to jail, sometimes for a brief period, but often for the full sentence you were facing when convicted.
If you are facing a probation violation hearing, it is in your best interest to hire a criminal attorney to argue on your behalf.
