When you are placed on probation or community control, you are advised of conditions you must complete or adhere to while you are in a position of community control. Should you violate the conditions by intentionally or materially breaking the rules, your probation or community control could be violated. A probation officer will fill out an affidavit asking the judge to sign a warrant for your arrest. As a result, you may be kept in a county jail pending the results of a Violation or Bond hearing. A judge may set a bond for your release, but does not need to set a bond.
Violation of probation proceedings are different from other criminal proceedings:
(You may sit in jail until your hearing)
|Right to Jury Trial||No
(The judge will hear your case)
|Burden of Proof||Preponderance of evidence||Beyond a reasonable doubt|
|Forced to Testify||Yes||No|
