How is probation violated?
When a person is convicted of DUI, probation is ordered for one year in Kansas and often two years in Missouri. As DUI is a non-violent crime in most cases, this is a common form of punishment. However, if that probation is violated, the defendant will most likely face even harsher penalties.
Common ways probation is violated include:
- Failure to pay court fees and/or restitution
- Failure to appear for your probation monitor's meetings
- Failure to comply with court orders such as counseling, community service, or AA
- Violation of conditions or rules of a probation agreement
- Committing a crime while on probation
- Possessing illegal substances or testing positive for drugs or alcohol
If you have violated the terms of your probation, or just been accused of violating your probation, you need a skilled defense lawyer. You should also be preparing to present yourself in the best light in court if your probation officer tries to revoke your probation.
