Probation is almost always an attractive option. Most first-time offenders are offered probation and take it. Unfortunately, the reality of how difficult it is to live under the terms of probation only becomes clear later.
Many people find it all too easy to violate the terms of their probation. People find themselves facing accusations that they violated the terms of their probation. Common violations include:
While it may seem like a less consequential legal proceeding than a trial, a probation violation is actually more likely to result in you going to jail. At a probation violation hearing the standard of evidence is lower than at trial. The standard is a preponderance of the evidence which is much lower than the "beyond a reasonable doubt" standard used in criminal trials. This means that it is easier for you to go to jail.
