What is a “material and willful” violation of my probation?

Category: Probation Dos and Don’ts

A “material” violation of your probation is dependent upon the facts and circumstances of your case. On the other hand, “willful” probation is your choice, decision or intentional act. Your Probation Officer (PO) can allege whatever s/he wants as a violation, but the Judge must first lawfully find that you materially and willfully violated your probation before your probation can be revoked, and you can be sentenced.
