Probation Violation Penalties

Arizona Revised Statute §13-901 allows for probation to be handed down as a sentence in lieu of jail or a prison sentence for an individual convicted of a crime. However, there are always going to be guidelines and restrictions related to the probation sentence. Violating the guidelines and restrictions set forth under the terms of probation will typically result in a violation and a revocation of the probation.

Some of the reasons why probation can be revoked include the following:

  • Failing to report to probation officers on designated dates or at designated locations
  • Failing to submit to curfews each day
  • Failing to remain within the radius of a certain location (home, school, work)
  • Testing positive for alcohol or drugs
  • Failing to attend recommended treatment programs
  • Failing to maintain employment
  • Possessing drugs, weapons, or other illegal paraphernalia
  • Being arrested and charged with a new crime

Penalties For A Phoenix Probation Violation

If a person is accused of violating probation, they face various consequences depending on the facts related to each particular case. The court could issue a warrant for your arrest, modify the terms of your probation (making them harsher), or revoke your probation altogether.

If probation is revoked, a person may need to serve the entire sentence related to their original charge. If a person has been charged with a new crime and thereby had their probation revoked, they may end up serving time for their original conviction as well as any new conviction.
