When an individual is accused of violating the terms of his or her probation, it is a serious matter which should be aggressively defended. A violation of probation is not a new crime, but the act of not living up to the stipulations and responsibilities of the terms of your probation, which the court has ordered.

When there is a plea bargain, or the court chooses to impose a term of probation instead of jail or prison time, it is generally considered an act of faith that the individual has learned from his or her mistake, has the ability to stay out of trouble, and follow the orders handed down by the court. When an individual violates the terms of probation, the courts generally do not act favorably, as the courts do not like it when they show a leap of faith for an individual, and their “good will” is taken for granted.
