harsher punishment, e.g. incarceration. For those under probation, major
scrutiny is given to all of their actions and some rights may either be
restricted or even taken away altogether.
Every individual who is given probation as a punishment must follow the
terms as ordered by the courts. As an example, you can be found in violation
if you fail to attend meetings with your probation officer. Another example
is if a restraining order has been placed against you, and you visit the
individuals or area where you are restricted, that is also considered
Fortunately, being accused of violating your probation is defensible, with
