Because judges view probation as a bond of trust between the court and the defendant, the penalty for breaking that bond can be harsh. When a probation officer, prosecutor, or judge charges a probationer with a probation violation, penalties can include prison, county detention, community service, longer probation terms and/or more restrictions, increased levels of supervision, monitored sobriety, alcohol or drug therapy, and increased fines and court fees.
