    I am on felony probation and just caught a new charge and haven't went to court yet can they violate me?

    Phillip’s Answer

    Yes..... One of your conditions of probation is not to violate the laws of any governmental unit and by getting arrested or cited it has been alleged that you violated some law & theoretically that can be enough to violate your probation. You need to hire an attorney as soon as possible
