Criminal convictions often involve a probation period during which certain conditions and obligations must be met by court order. Failure to meet those conditions and obligations can result in mandatory court appearances to address potential violations.
Probation violations can be serious, especially in situations where fines or jail sentences were stayed, or “put on hold,” at the original sentencing hearing. If it is determined in court that a probation violation has occurred, the original sentencing criteria may be imposed in full.
