DUI Probation Violations in Orange County

In Orange County and throughout California, when a driver is found guilty of driving under the influence (DUI), he or she is usually granted probation. When someone is granted probation, they must agree to abide by a set of conditions imposed by the court – this way the DUI defendant can avoid a jail sentence.

Suppose you are granted probation for DUI and you fail to comply with any of the terms or conditions, a violation can result in what’s called a probation violation, or a “PV.” Probation violations are taken very seriously be the court and will be penalized accordingly.

Probation conditions often include:

  • Cal-Trans roadside work
  • Alcoholics Anonymous
  • MAAD Victim Impact Panel
  • Community service
  • Attending alcohol-related classes
  • DUI School
  • Restitution to any victims
  • Paying any damages connected to the DUI
  • House arrest or electronic monitoring
  • Having to wear a SCRAM device
  • Not driving with any alcohol in the system
  • You can’t commit any crimes while on probation

Probation Violations Lead to Arrests

While the probation terms vary depending on the circumstances of the case, all defendants are obligated to abide by the conditions set forth by the judge. This includes: showing proof of enrollment in all classes, completing community service and Cal-Trans work etc., paying all fines, and not driving with any measurable alcohol in the system.

If you fail to show proof of enrollment or completion, or if you fail to complete your court-ordered community service, or pay all the fines, or if you fail to appear for any of your hearings, or if you drive on a suspended license, you violated your probation, and the judge will likely issue a bench warrant for your arrest. A bench warrant can lead to additional penalties, including jail time.
