Probation Violations in Raleigh
Probation is a typical part of most sentences resulting from a criminal
conviction in Raleigh. There are many terms to probation, and the person
on probation must adhere to any number of specific guidelines, including
meeting with their probation officer, performing community service, and
paying fines or restitution. If you are found to be in violation of any
of the terms of your probation, you could be reported and charged with
