Accused of Violating Your Probation in Denton County?

When you have been given probation as part of your sentence, you will have certain requirements that must be met. This could include:
- Paying fines in a timely manner
- Attending specific court-mandated classes
- Avoiding any other arrests
- Passing drug testing
When an individual fails in any of their probation requirements, the judge may consider this contempt. Courts often do not look kindly on individuals who fail to adhere to the terms of probation, and have the option of imposing the sentence that was avoided when probation was the sentence, or even increasing sentence with added time for the violation.
