A probation sentence is generally a substitute for jail time or much harsher consequences. If the person violates the terms of probation, there are additional sentencing guidelines, including jail time, fines or additional community service or rehabilitation.
If you are facing a probation violation sentence, you need skilled criminal representation on your side to fight the charge and protect against additional sentencing.
