The terms of an individual’s probation are legally binding and if found in violation of said probation they may find themselves facing additional penalties in the state of Maine.

The terms of one’s probation are often specific to their offense so if you are unsure you should discuss your concerns with your probation officer. An individual can be found in violation of their probation if they:

  • Fail to appear in court
  • Fail to complete a required course/treatment program
  • Fail to report to a probation officer
  • Commit an additional crime
  • Fail to complete community service
  • Fail to maintain employment

According to Maine code §1206 states if a person If a person on probation is convicted of a new crime during the period of probation, the court may sentence that person for the crime and revoke probation.

If the person has been sentenced for the new crime and probation revocation proceedings are subsequently commenced, the court that conducts the revocation hearing may revoke probation.

WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF A PROBATION VIOLATION IN MAINE?

An officer does not have a set practice for reporting violators so they may either issue a warning or inform the accused violator that they will need to appear in court.

At the court appearance, the probation officer will make a recommendation for a punishment for the offender.

Punishments, including the decision to only issue a warning, are based on the violation as well as criminal history.

If the offender has previously violated the terms of probation, they are more likely to not receive a warning.
