What is a probation violation, and what are the consequences?

For people charged with a crime, the criminal court proceedings are sometimes only the start of them having to deal with the law. If they are found guilty of the charges placed against them, they might be sentenced to serve probation. While probation does give you some freedom, there are still rules that you are bound by in accordance with Maryland law. If you happen to disobey these rules, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, you might face a probation violation.

When you are on probation or parole, it is extremely important that you follow the guidelines set forth in the terms of your supervision. If you fail to do so, you might be subject to more criminal charges than your original convictions. In some cases, remembering all the terms you are given can be difficult. For one man, allegedly failing to comply with probation terms led to the Maryland State Police knocking on his door with a federal warrant for a probation violation.

Probation violation nets man more than 6 years in jail

Anyone who is on parole or probation knows how important it is to stay out of trouble. For some people, trouble just seems to sneak up on them when they least expect it. In those cases, the parolee or probationer will usually face charges associated with parole or probation violations. For one man, violating his probation by being convicting of theft has landed him a sentence of more than six years in jail.

Marijuana possession leads to probation violation

Official documents show that a legal authority in the state faces a probation violation hearing related to drinking and driving. If he is found guilty, the defendant faces two months in jail. In 2003, defendant was found guilty of another DUI and was also placed on probation for that offense. The defendant is appealing a court decision related to his probation because the judge denied him probation before judgment. He was convicted of marijuana possession in November 2012, which led to the current probation violation.

Charges filed against Maryland man for drug distribution

A wild police chase led to the arrest of two men, one of whom lives in Maryland, on drug charges. During a task force investigation into cocaine sales, law enforcement personnel initially attempted to take the pair into custody on serious criminal charges. As the officers walked up to a car belonging to one of the subjects, the driver allegedly took off with a passenger in the vehicle. As he fled the scene, he allegedly struck a law enforcement vehicle and nearly missed a police officer. Officers shot at the vehicle in retaliation, but no one was hit. The passenger eventually jumped out of the car and slightly injured himself. Law enforcement personnel eventually deflated the vehicle tires and arrested the men. In addition to drug charges, the driver faces additional charges of assault on a police officer and fleeing from the police. He also previously violated his probation in Maryland. Both suspects were taken into custody.
