Probation violation is a serious offense that could result in jail or prison time depending on the charge. Typical ways you can violate probation include, failing to report to your probation officer, failing to pay your probation fees or fines, moving out of the county or state without authorization, and committing a subsequent offense. Once any of these events occurs, the probation office will violate you and issue a warrant for your arrest, and the judge will decide whether to sentence you to finish out the rest of your probation behind bars or to reinstate your probation.
