A substantive probation violation occurs when the probationer is arrested on a new charge while on probation.
A technical violation is a probationer’s failure to do something that s/he was required to do while on probation (like failing to report, failing to seek permission to travel, providing a dirty urine sample, violating a curfew, etc…).
Obviously picking up a new criminal charge (a substantive violation) is “worse” but even a lonely technical can result in revocation and incarceration.
The best rule of thumb is to think of your time on probation as walking on a tightrope. Stray just a little to either side, lose your concentration or balance even for a moment and you fall. However, instead of landing on the ground you land in jail or prison.
If you are on probation then please, pretty please, follow these 2 rules: 1) Do what you are supposed to do (when and how you are supposed to do it) and 2) Do not do anything that you are not supposed to do.
But, if you find yourself facing a probation violation then invoke and call me… I’d like to help you.
