Re: Subject:Guidelines for probation violation

Probation Violations run the full gamut from

committing new crimes and failing to report

(obvious) to not completing treatment programs

failing to do what the probation officer

tells you to do, failing to keep a job,etc.

Anything that is written in the original Order

of Probation that is not done is also a

potential violation.

If it is a felony probation, extradition is

done. If it is a misdemeanor probation,

while permissible, extradition is generally

not done.
