If you have been placed on probation after a misdemeanor or felony case, you will be subject to the terms and conditions of that probation as set forth by the court. Should you violate the terms of your probation, you may be subject to arrest by law enforcement or a probation officer. A court hearing will follow in which the judge will determine if you violated your probation and what the consequences will be.

We focus much of our practice on criminal defense in Duplin County. We are familiar with and known in the local criminal courts; that experience and our commitment to results will work to your advantage in any probation violation matter.

Violating the Terms of Your Probation

According to North Carolina law, probation is designed to "insure that the defendant will lead a law-abiding life or assist him to do so." The terms of your probation will generally include that:

  • you commit no future offenses
  • remain within your court's jurisdiction unless granted permission to leave
  • report to your probation officer
  • refrain from absconding as well as possessing guns or other deadly weapons
  • pay any family support obligations as determined by the courts
  • seek gainful employment or a course of job training
  • pay all necessary court costs and fees associated with probation

At the discretion of the court, probation may also include such conditions as house arrest with electronic monitoring, community service hours, detention in a confinement facility for not more than six days per month, drug or alcohol testing and treatment, or completion of a domestic abuser's program.

Should you violate the terms of your probation, your probation may be revoked by the court resulting in your incarceration. Because of the serious consequences you may be facing, you will want to enlist the services of a competent attorney to help you obtain the best possible case result.
