Violations of Probation, or VOP, are serious matters. Whether the alleged violation is technical in nature, such as failure to complete community service hours or failing a drug test, or substantive in nature, such as being arrested or accused of a new law violation, a person charged with a violation of probation can be sentenced to the maximum period in jail or prison that he or she could have been sentenced to on the original charge for which he or she was placed on probation. Additionally, 'Violation of Probation' warrants are often 'No Bond' warrants meaning that once arrested, a defendant can not bond out of jail while the case is pending and you may be sitting in jail for weeks or months until your case is resolved. Because of this, many people facing a VOP get scared and simply stop reporting to their probation officer. However, failing to report to your probation often makes the matter worse by causing additional grounds for violation. Additionally, if the court knows that you failed to report, the court may be less inclined to give you bond or even another chance at successfully completing your probation when you are eventually arrested on the outstanding violation of probation warrant.
