Probation & Parole Violations

After being convicted of a crime many individuals are often sentenced to probation as an alternative to jail. In a similar manner, individuals can be sentenced to jail and after serving the minimum amount of jail time they become eligible to finish their sentence on parole.

While being on probation or parole individuals must comply with the conditions of their sentence and the rules of their county’s probation department. If an individual fails to comply with the conditions of their probation or parole they are considered in violation. If you have violated your probation or parole contact me immediately at (610) 744-2500.

In Pennsylvania, there are two types of violations of parole or probation. The first type of violation is when an individual is convicted of another crime while on probation or parole. The second type of violation is when an individual fails to comply with the conditions and rules of their probation or parole. Some examples of technical violations are:

  • Failure to Report
  • Failure to Pay Restitution
  • Failure to Pay Fines and Costs
  • Failure to Maintain a Job
  • Failure to Meet Community Service Obligation
  • Use of Alcohol or Drugs
