LOS ANGELES, June 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Zolonz & Associates explain, in a new article, the negative consequences of violating a probation order in California.
Probation is better than going to jail, but breaking the court order can have negative consequences. Under no circumstances should a convicted offender violate his or her probation conditions as California has some of the strictest penalties.
Some of the harshest consequences of violating a probation order are:
- Revoking the probation and sending the offender to a jail or prison to serve the remaining years of his/her sentence.
- Modifying the terms of the probation to make them more severe
- Reinstating the probation without modifying the current terms and conditions.
- Financial repercussions.
"Probation violation bail amounts can vary greatly by situation and location – California permits each county to set forth their own bail amounts. In Los Angeles County, a person will face a $10,000 bail amount for violating the terms of their probation, while in Orange County, the amount is $15,000 for misdemeanors. On the other hand, in Sacramento County, a person rearrested for violating felony probation will cost $20,000 for bail and a violation of misdemeanor probation in the same county is $10,000 for bail."
