PROBATION VIOLATIONS | YOU HAVE OPTIONS
Facing a probation revocation or adjudication can be a frightening prospect because or the prospect of facing jail or prison time and having a final conviction on your record, but it’s important to know that you have options. Just because the Court has filed a Motion to Adjudicate or Revoke based on a probation violation doesn’t mean that your case will get revoked. Here are some of the ways you can stay on probation:
1. Agree to an intermediate sanction, such as a small amount of jail time or additional community service hours, in lieu of a probation revocation,
2. Agree to a drug or alcohol program like IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program), ISF (Intermediate Sanction Facility), IDT (In-Custody Drug Treatment), or SAFPF (Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Facility) to address a positive drug test(s) or a new drug-related offense.
3. Agree to an extension of probation to give you time to complete all of the programs as required.
4. Present evidence or information to the prosecutor or Court properly explaining the reason for the violation and the Court agreeing to dismiss the Motion to Revoke or Adjudicate.
