Generally, probation will follow after a person pleads guilty or if the person was found guilty of a criminal offense by either a judge or jury. A probation violation may be found based on a person committing a new criminal law violation, non-payment of court costs/fees, non-compliance with treatment or any other condition the court ordered. When the court receives information of an alleged violation the court would require the person to appear in court. At the review hearing, a person may be facing additional jail time, fines and other conditions the court deems appropriate.
