Probation in ARS §13-901
In many cases where a person has been convicted of a crime, they may be eligible for probation under A.R.S. §13-901 in lieu of a jail or prison sentence. When a person is on probation, they must follow certain guidelines and restrictions, such as:
- Reporting to a probation officer on designated dates and at designated locations
- Submitting to curfews
- Remaining within a certain radius of their home and/or workplace
When a person is on probation and fails to comply with any of their probation agreements, they could be charged with a violation and face the risk of returning to jail or prison and serving the remainder of their sentence without chance of parole.
Rearrest While On Probation
The court and probation officers have the authority to issue a warrant for rearrest or rearrest someone who is on probation if they feel it is warranted. Typically, the court issues a warrant for rearrest or modify the terms of probation if the defendant violated any component of their probation agreement.
If You Violate Probation The Court Can...
- Issue a warrant for your arrest
- Modify the terms of your probation (usually making them harsher)
- Revoke your probation, which could result in your imprisonment
When the odds are stacked against you, turn to a firm that cares.
