Violation of Probation (VOP)
Probation Violations in Utah
Probation in Utah can be given as a form of sentencing for individuals who have committed certain misdemeanor or felony offenses. The period of probation can range from 12 to 36 months, depending on the severity of the offense committed. During this time period, the probationer must abide by certain rules and restrictions, including regular reporting to a probation officer or random drug testing.
Violation of probation can lead to serious consequences including being convicted of the underlying offense, or being sentenced to jail or prison time. Defenses to violation of probation often center around whether the violation was willful and substantial.
