Probation is a good resolution for people who may have committed an offense and have little likelihood of repeating their mistake. It is not necessarily a good way to resolve a case if you have a drug problem, a mental issue or are likely to screw up the conditions of probation. If you are addicted to pain killers and get placed on probation there is a high chance you will slip and repeat your past conduct. If you are bi-polar or have a similar issue and are placed on probation for domestic violence with a relative or spouse or girlfriend, there is a good chance you will find yourself violating the conditions of probation.
Many times the probation officer gets an attitude about a particular person and looks for a way to violate them. In order for the Court to find you guilty of violation of probation the act you committed or the failure to comply with the conditions of probation must be willful and substantial. A simple technical violation like being late for an appointment with your probation officer may not be enough for the judge to send you back to jail. Having a probation violation lawyer represent you may keep you from doing time in the County Jail or worse yet State Prison. Having good representation is important. You may need a third chance
You may have been given a second chance and because of circumstances, failed to live up to expectations and messed up on your conditions of probation. This does not automatically mean jail. If you have a drug issue it may mean treatment or having your probation bumped up to drug offender probation. You may need enhanced supervision as an alternative to jail
