Technical Violation vs. Substantive Violation
A Technical Violation of Probation is defined as violating the conditions of the imposed probation and does not involve committing a new crime. Some examples of this include:
- Changing residency without permission
- Failure to pay court fees or fines
- Failure to appear for a probation meeting
- Being late to a probation meeting
- Failure to complete court-ordered classes
- No violations of any state criminal law
- Do not leave the state without permission from the Court
- Failing to pay restitution to the victim
Substantive Violation of Probation is defined as the act of committing a new crime. This means you face the judge for the new crime and the crime associated with your probation. In this situation, the court has every right to revoke your probation and reinstate the original conviction whether you are found guilty or not. This is time to fight aggressively!
