Probation Violation hearings can be very unnerving for folks on probation. Generally, a Judge has already given someone an opportunity to avoid jail or prison time in a criminal case so long as the individual abides by the terms and conditions of his/her probation.
Probation terms and conditions are generally the same in all cases, and probation violation hearings are scheduled at the direction of a Probation Officer who alleges violations of them. An individual’s liberty is certainly at stake during this hearing, as a probationary sentence may be revoked and a term of incarceration be imposed by the Judge.
