Getting charged with a probation violation can range in severity. Failure to properly address a probation violation can result in jail time. If you are charged with a small infraction, you may have to attend an administrative hearing and end up with more time on probation. For a more egregious violation like not paying fees or committing another crime, your probation may be revoked and you will be sent to jail. Regardless of the circumstances, it is critical to handle the situation appropriately.
