What are examples of a minor probation violation?

Augusta, ME |

Could you give examples, and what punishments could be faced?

  1. The nature of the punishment really depends largely upon the underlying offense that you are serving probation for. As a result, much more would need to be known.


  2. You do not appear to be asking a specific question about a specific situation. If you have one, then you should ask it.

    It would seem that if probation is currently violating you, then it would appear to be something more than minor. If probation is willing to overlook it, then I suspect that one could view it as minor.

    If you are violated, punishment could range from imposing any custody that was stayed down to revoking and reinstating and than noting the violation on your record.


  3. Enev a Minor violation can lead to you serving all of the suspended part of your sentence. The stakes are very high.
