UNDERSTANDING PROBATION VIOLATIONS IN UTAH
When you were placed on probation or parole, you were given certain conditions and terms which must be met to avoid being incarcerated in jail or prison according to your conviction. The judge and your probation or parole officer will expect you to meet those conditions or else be subject to a continuation or extension of your sentence. Standard probation requirements include:
- Not associating with any known criminals or criminal activity
- Refraining from the use of illegal drugs and submitting to drug and alcohol chemical tests
- Strict obedience to all local, state, and federal laws
- Finding and engaging in gainful employment
- Reporting to your probation officer as needed
- Having your person, home, and car searched without a warrant under suspicion of breaking the law
Special conditions may be issued for probation or parole after a conviction concerning sexual misconduct.
Your probation or parole officer or a prosecutor can assert that you have violated the conditions of your probation or parole which can result in your being put in jail. They will prepare and submit an affidavit to the judge containing allegations as to what your violation was. Once the judge reviews the affidavit, he can order you to appear and "show cause" as to whether he should revoke your probation or parole which means a fulfilling your jail or prison sentence.
