Probation Violation is defined as any instance where a condition of probation has been broken. Probation sentences have general, and specific terms of condition attached. The overall mission of probation is to "keep the peace and encourage good behavior". When charged with a violation of probation the terms of the former probation can be seriously intensified and even lead to incarceration. While the conditions of probation are less severe than those of parole, these terms of probation can have a huge impact on your life. If charged you should call Probation Violation Attorney Bank today.
