Probation Violations Are All Too Common

Probation is generally a more attractive option than jail when sentencing options are available. Many people pursue probation only to find that it is too difficult to live under its conditions. Common probation violations include:

  • Dirty UAs (failure to abstain from drugs or alcohol)
  • Failure to report to your probation officer
  • Being arrested for another crime
  • Failing to make a court appearance
  • Failing to complete community service
  • Failing to make restitution
  • Failing to follow probation rules
  • Absconding

Being found to have violated your probation can turn a single, seemingly minor mistake into a very quick trip to jail. The best course of action to fight an alleged probation violation in Wisconsin is to seek an alternative to revocation (ATR) of probation. The goal is to find something else that you can do that will satisfy probation and prevent the revocation of your probation.
