What is a Probation Violation?
A Probation Violation is an accusation by the Probation Officer that the court order has not been followed. If a bench warrant is issued, the defendant is arrested or turns him/herself in to the jail. The defendant will either post bond or see a judge on the following business day. The other way a Probation Violation is brought forth is if the Probation Officer files a petition and a court date is set.
