Types of Arizona Probation Violation Charges
There are a variety of Arizona probation violation charges. Perhaps there was a mix-up and you haven't been able to pay restitution. Maybe your probation officer assumed there was a violation and put out a warrant for your arrest. You might have skipped a meeting with your probation officer. There could have been a court-mandated program that you forgot about. Or, you may have been arrested on related or unrelated charges.
Whatever the cause, you are at the mercy of the judge, who could reinstate or lengthen your original sentence, extend your probation, or order new conditions of your probation.
