Probation Violations in Ohio

If you violate probation (known as community control in Ohio), you might face a simple warning, or you might be put under arrest.  If law enforcement arrests you, you will appear in a revocation hearing in front of the judge who initially sentenced you.  This hearing has to happen within 30 days of your arrest.  You are not entitled to bond but a lot of the times the judge will give you a bond.  The judge has the option to allow you to continue on probation, which could include increased conditions. The judge may also revoke your probation and send you straight to jail or prison.


Please call the Law Office of Sean A. Boris if there is a possibility the judge will revoke your probation and send you to jail, you want to take every action possible to reduce the chances of that happening.
