PROBATION / COMMUNITY CONTROL VIOLATIONS
Probation, Community Control, Affidavit of Violation, Arrest Warrant
Probation and/or community control violations can be serious offenses. If you have failed to meet the court ordered terms of your probation or community control, your probation officer can file an Affidavit of Violation and issue a warrant for your arrest. Once arrested, you can be held in jail without bond.
Examples of probation and/or community control violations include, but are not limited to:
* Failure to report to probation officer
* Associating with known criminals/gang members
* Drug or alcohol abuse
* Failure to appear in court
* Failure to pay victim restitution or court-ordered fines
* Failure to attend court-ordered counseling
* Arrest for a new criminal offense
If you are accused of violating your probation and/or community control, you will not be afforded the same rights as you would enjoy if you were facing a substantive offense. A few examples of your lack of rights include:
* You will not have the right to a trial by jury
* You can be forced to testify
* The state does not have to prove your guilt beyond reasonable doubt to secure a guilty verdict
