    Answered . It depends on the judge's orders to the probation officer. For some minor violations, the probation officer can not report to the judge but talk to the probationer about the problem. If it repeats and is not being resolved the probation officer might then take the matter to the judge. Some judges want to hear about every violation, some judges want to hear only about major violations, and some judges have specific orders about their concerns. However, if at some point the probation officer does report any violations to the judge, then they will all probably be reported and then acted upon. There is not limit on the time period in which the violations must be presented to the judge.
