When the court suspends a sentence or places a person on probation, that person must comply with certain terms and conditions. A probation violation or revocation proceeding may result when one is alleged to have violated any of those terms and conditions. If the court finds a person in violation, the court has broad discretion in sentencing. For example, the court may extend the period of probation, require payment of any or all of previously suspended fines, and/or require a person to serve a portion of or the remainder of the previously suspended sentence.
