As an initial sentence, probation is a typically preferred punishment over incarceration. Basically, probation is an alternative form of punishment that allows you to stay out of jail, provided that you fully comply with every condition required by the judge.

A violation of probation occurs when a person fails to comply with one or more of the conditions of their probation. Whether the violation was intentional or unintentional makes no difference, and it is treated as a violation regardless.

Violations of Probation Can Be Categorized As:

Technical Violation — this is probably the more common violation and occurs when a person on probation fails to comply with one of the conditions set forth by the judge at the original time of sentence. Examples of technical violations include breaking curfew, failing to report, failing to pay costs of probation, failing to pay court costs or restitution, and failing a drug test.

New Law Violation — this occurs when a person who is on probation is arrested for a new offense. A new law violation can and probably will occur even in the event that the probationer commits a minor offense, such as a second-degree misdemeanor.
