A First Time Probation Violation in Orange County is not the end of the world. It’s important to know how serious the violations are as it relates to the original charge, the history of the person violating probation, and the specific court and judge you will be appearing in for your violation. Below are some of th most common questions I have run into in regards to first-time probation violations as an Orarage County Probation Violation Attorney.
Will I Get Jail Time for a First-Time Probation Violation?
What Can Happen to Me After a First-Time Probation Violation?
What Happens If My First-time Probation Violation was the result of a New Offense?
Factors that will weigh on your penalty from the judge for your first probation violation the type of probation you are on. If you are on formal probation then you will have a probation officer’s report. These will almost always say they recommend 90 days in jail.
The nature of your new criminal offense that triggers the violation. For example, if you are on DUI probation then a new violation of disorderly conduct will not be considered a minor violation and not as serious as a second time DUI. One will get you reinstated and the other will get you 90 days in jail in Orange County.
