When a judge places you on probation you feel relieved but probation is not easy and your worries are not over. Probation means evaluations, counseling, drug testing, reporting to the probation officer and jumping through whatever hoops your probation officer decides to impose. Judges believe they have given you a break so they are not sympathetic towards you when your probation officer decides you are not In compliance with probation.
If your probation officer thinks you have violated your probation they will inform the judge of your alleged violation and they will ask the judge to schedule an Order to Show Cause as to why your probation should not be revoked and the original sentence imposed. At that point you will need a lawyer to help you through the Order to Show Cause process.
