Probation Terms in Glen Burnie, Maryland

If you have been put on probation, then you have been released from detention and other serious punishments. Your probation conditions are dependent upon you maintaining good behavior during a certain time period under strict supervision.

Restrictions that can be a part of your probation agreement can include:

  • Curfew times
  • Movements outside of jurisdiction
  • Possession of dangerous items (such as firearms)
  • Regular meetings with probation officer
  • Remaining drug or alcohol-free

If you violate any of the conditions outlined in your probation agreement, you could be facing serious consequences.

Consequences of Violation of Probation

A violation of probation in Maryland is rather serious and should be handled with great attention and care from an experienced attorney. Consequences of a violation of probation can vary, but in all cases the original probation agreement will be revoked.

If you were offered probation in place of a different punishment, your consequences may include:

  • Resuming the original punishment
  • Paying fines
  • Spending time in jail
  • Serving a longer probation period under heavier restrictions

If you violate your probation, you will most likely be summoned to a scheduled hearing during which a witness of the state (most likely your probation officer) must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you breached your probation terms.
