Probation is not easy. The ways you can violate your Volusia County probation are almost endless. Generally speaking, probation violations come in two different forms. People either commit a "technical" violation of their probation or they commit a "new law" violation.
Technical violations can come in many forms. Examples of a technical violation include: failure to pay fines, costs or restitution, failure to complete community service hours, failure to meet your probation officer when required to do so, failure to complete a court ordered program such as DUI school or anger management classes, failure to obtain or maintain lawful employment, failing a drug test, and just about anything else that your probation officer can think of to violate your probation.
New law violations occur when you are on probation and you get arrested and/or charged with another criminal offense. A "new law" violation can result from any new arrest or charge. One minor slip-up, like driving without a valid driver’s license can turn into a probation revocation, no bond warrant and a jail or prison sentence.
