The maximum time will be whatever the original time depending on the crime. On mine it was 4 to 30 years. If found guilty. They will tell you ask your probation officer ( in a what if way ) don't admit it. He knows exactly what the deal is. I hope this helps you

What happens on probation violation, is that the judge can just take away the probation and make them serve the sentence in jail. For example if you had 4 years probation and it is violated, they can make you just serve the 4 years in jail.

It does not happen that hard normally but it can, with the right judge and the wrong violation, esp if it was clearly known they were not suppose to leave. Also since all they have to do is ask permission, and if there is a good reason they normally can for a trip.

But what will happen first, is that they are picked up and put either in jail or in a state probation detention center. They may sit there for a month just waiting for a hearing. ( no speedly trial issue, since they are already convicted)

Hello mommy:

The difference between parole and probation is, when you're on parole you are serving your time on the street. If you have one day left on parole and you're violated, they can make you serve only that one day.

Probation, however, is served IN LIEU of prison. Therefore, one can be violated on the last day of probation and made to serve the ENTIRE underlying sentence.

I am on PRC in Ohio, same rules as probation. They can give you whatever the range on your felony conviction calls for. For example, F3 = 1-5 years. Typically, the most time first time offenders get is the minimum on the sentence range, at least in Ohio. I was originally put on proby for drug charges, after two violations they sentenced me to the minimum prison term, and I had to do all of the time.

I am in Ohio... I think it depends on the original charges, what yor probation requirements were, if you've violated before, and if you can afford an attorney. If at all possible do not use public defender. You can usually talk to an attorney about your case, get him paid in some way, and he will arrange for you to appear in front of the judge to deal with the violation. With the attorney he may even be able to talk with the prosecutor beforehand and make what amounts to a "deal" so your punishment could be fairly light. My friend, in TX had this problem and with an attorney they gave her a second chance... of course her violation was non violent. When she violated the second time the told her she will have to serve the original sentence (for her 7 yr). Hope I helped in some way.

I don't have an answer for that question... but I do have my own question... I was charged with simple poccesion in Tennessee and what put on 11/29 probation. Then half way through my probation I violated due to failed drug test.. turned myself in and went to court then had my derversion taking away due to a bad lawyer.. and we then put back on probation! Now I'm on my seconde violation 7 months later with the same violation failed drug test and am wondering what I should expect? Is there anyway I can get out of jail time? And if not how long would I have to serve?

Some of these answers r correct and some r not. If you violate your parole in Ohio it all depends on what you porbation officer wants to do. He/She could or could not violate you depending on the violation and depending on if you caught a new case or if you have been charged. He/she could place a hold on you while your in jail waiting on a hearing so you can not bond out, or they could not put a hold on you and you can bond out. If violated you judge can only give you the max of 1/2 you probate time. So if you have a 5 year sentence then you can only do 2 1/2. Most do not give that whole amount. Now if you got out of prison before you whole sentence was up you will end up doing your whole time unless your still under the old law, then they can play with how much time you do.

We need to know more about your situation and you need to stop using text speak.

You have lost your children because you are addicted to meth? What terms were given to you in order to get them back?

Have you complied with those terms?

I just found out that I have a techinacal violation for undeliverable mail. I thought I was off probation now for well over a year and a half. When in fact they issued a warrant 5 months before I was suppose to expire off. What does this mean. Can they make me serve the remaining 5 months is jail, or is it typically a 30 day violation and then finish 5 months of probation.
I am turning myself in in the morning: My attorney said we will then be herd by the judge the next day??

Yes, you could be sentenced to the remaining 5 months or you could be warned. I trust your Attorney knows your situation better than we do - listen to him/her.

Want to tell us where? It varies. I suspect you will go to jail for the full sentence you would have received if you had not been placed on probation.

What type of time will my boyfriend have to serve if he missed his parole appt on may 3, in Houston, Texas (he actually signed in on May 3 to see his parole officer and she wasn't available so he left.) but still went to see his officer on May 30, then went back 3 times to see the supervisor and she wasn't available, and he also signed in, then his parole ended on June 30. They picked him up this morning on parole violation. Did 3 yrs on parole and never was violated, until now. He served 10 yrs in prison, and it hurts him to be back in jail because we have a 13 month old baby that he loves to death. He didn't want this to happen again. Somebody let me know some info. Thank you. Ana

Hello Ana:

In MY view, they CAN'T violate his parole AFTER he's OFF parole. They only have one shot at him and that shot expired when his sentence did.

I'd hire me a damn good lawyer.

PS> (edited) I suppose the one caveat the state could have is IF the warrant was issued BEFORE his parole expired...

Its different in every state, like here in Oregon my husband violated parole by not registering his new address, and I guess he had a bench warrant for failure to sign up for community service from a previous conviction. He was facing sentencing still for another crime (long story) so a week before sentencing he gets the PV and while in jail for that he got sentenced for the other crime for 40 days that got reduced to 32 days and minus another week time served. Then at sentencing for the PV another week later he got a 4 month work release sentence which might just be as bad at county lock up because he has to pay additional fines of 3 grand on top of the restitution he owes of 9 grand! He was sentenced to 18 months 5 times but they all are congruent with each other thank god! The only thing I want to know is does he still have to do that community service now that he was sentenced to something else? And can he appeal work release or abscond work release and just get a jail sentence for the PV, could that mean he does the actual 18 months? He has until the 16th to decide. I want to ask a lawyer because the court appointed attorney did nothing. I can't afford anyone expensive to file an appeal but I need to know if he should even do that. He just doesn't want to do work release, he wants to take responsibility for his actions but wants to get a job, he just doesn't want more fees to pay..? Do I make sense?

Hello h:

Well apparently there's ONE thing you did that wasn't wanted. What will happen will depend on what you did to violate.. If you just missed a meeting, they probably won't do much.. But, if they caught you with cocaine, then they probably will do something.
