Phoenix Probation Violation Attorneys
Accused of Violating the Terms of Your Probation?
If an individual has been sentenced for a specific crime and is serving
probation in Arizona, it is imperative that he or she fully abides by
the terms set forth by the court. If not, their probation officer can
file a “Petition to Revoke Probation” and issue a warrant
for the person’s arrest. Once they have been arrested, they may
be held “non bondable” until their probation violation is
resolved in court, which means that they cannot be released from jail
until the judge has made their decision.

Have you been accused of violating the terms of your probation? Probation
violations are taken seriously by Arizona courts, which is why it is in

Common Probation Violations & Their Penalties
In Arizona, common punishments for those found guilty of a probation violation
may include an extension of the probationary period, revocation of probation,
counseling or treatment programs, physical labor, jail or prison time, and more.
An individual can be found guilty of violating the terms of their probation for:
- Possessing an illegal weapon or substance
- Committing another crime while on probation
- Missing a scheduled appearance in court
- Failing to pay restitution or attend counseling
- Failing to check in with a probation officer
- Violating any specific terms of their probation
criminal cases, prosecutors only have to prove a probation violation by a preponderance
of evidence – a much lower standard than proof "beyond a reasonable
doubt." Furthermore, the decision is left to the judge alone to make.
That is why it is extremely important to get in touch with an experienced
Phoenix criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
