There is no right to probation. Most criminal defendants see probation as a privilege rather than a right. Probation requirements are that the defendant report regularly to a probation officer, that the defendant notify and receive permission from the probation officer to change addresses, change jobs, or leave the county, and leading a good law-abiding life free of further crime. Violation of probation requirements can lead to a more serious sentence, such as imprisonment with retraction of probation privileges. Judges also have the power to remove a criminal defendant’s probation without awaiting new convictions or proof of probation violations. When a criminal defendant violates probation, he or she must attend a probation violation hearing without a jury. It is important to speak to a criminal defense attorney if having questions about whether particular conduct violates probation or endangers a criminal defendant’s chance of keeping probation instead of imprisonment.
