Probation Violations

Indiana law regards probation as a favor granted by the State, rather than a right to which the defendant is entitled; however, once the State grants that favor, it cannot simply revoke the privilege at its discretion.

The court may revoke a person’s probation if the State proves by a preponderance of the evidence that the person has violated a condition of probation during the probationary period.

Often times, the penalty for violating probation ends up being more severe than the penalty for the original crime. You are entitled to an attorney in probation revocation proceedings. Exercise that right.
