Washington Probation Violation Charges and Penalties
What constitutes Violating Probation?
At any time during the period of probation, if any probation officer, parole officer, or peace officer has probable cause to believe that the supervised person is violating any term or condition of the person’s supervision, the officer may, without warrant or other process and at any time until the final disposition of the case, rearrest the supervised person and bring them before the court or the court may, in its discretion, issue a warrant for their rearrest.
Depending on your charges, violating probation can mean different things, such as not appearing for a court hearing, failing to report to a probation officer, failing or refusing a drug test, failing to pay a fine or restitution, or even being arrested for a new criminal charge.
What is the Punishment?
Attempting to elude a police officer is a class C felony.
A class C felony is punishable by imprisonment for up to five years, a fine of up to $10,000.00, or both.
If you are convicted of attempting to elude a police officer, your license could be revoked or suspended.
As the sentence can vary so much it is important to have knowledgeable legal counsel who can advocate for the lowest sentence possible for you.
Even as a Defendant of a Crime, you still have Rights! Make sure yours were not violated!
Even as an individual facing criminal charges, you have rights. It is important to know those rights and make sure that they were not violated in any way when you were arrested or charged.
