As a highly competent attorney who is rated by Super Lawyers® for 2011 and 2012, Attorney Deandra M. Grant knows the serious ramifications of being violated while on probation and has helped dozens of clients avoid being convicted for probation violations. When you violate your probation, whatever sentence was suspended when you were put on probation can automatically take effect without a trial. The court must hear evidence of whether or not you actually violated your probation and decide whether or not the circumstances rise to the legal standard of a violation of probation, but this will all be done at a hearing, not a trial. The underlying charges for which you are on probation will then come back into effect and you will be sentenced to the original terms of your sentence for that underlying charge.
