A N.C. probation violation is a very serious matter as violations can lead to a defendant to jail. Such violations include missing report to a probation officer, testing positive for alcohol or controlled substances, improper travel, new arrests or convictions, or failure to obey sentencing requirements. Judges have a great deal of discretion and choice in how to handle violations including, altering the probation period, extending or shortening time, adding new conditions to probations, and other amendments to the original probation requirements. If a violation occurs a probation attorney can also contact the probation officer to avoid or mitigate violations. You need a Charlotte attorney to handle probation violations.
