New Law Violations
Being arrested for a crime while on probation will always result in a violation of probation. Judges rarely are inclined to allow a probationer to bond out of jail if they are accused of committing a new offense. Typically, a probationer has to fight the vop before the trial on the new offense. Prosecutors are often overwhelmed and may not have time to prepare for the violation of probation hearing. With little time for the state to prepare, this can work to the probationer’s advantage.
