What are Vista DUI Probation Violations?

On Behalf of | Sep 29, 2013

     Vista DUI probation violations are caused by failure to follow the terms and conditions of probation.  Every misdemeanor DUI has informal probation which means you do not have a probation officer and do not have to check in monthly.  You do have to follow the terms of probation which include not driving without valid license and insurance, submit to a chemical test if requested by law enforcement, do not drive with a measurable amount of alcohol in your system and violate no laws other than minor traffic.  In addition to these conduct rules, there are affirmative things that must be done by certain dates or they trigger Vista DUI probation violations, a warrant for your arrest and a hold on your license.

     Normally, the Court finds out about conduct violations if you pick up a new case, then a computer sweep checks for any open case you are on probation.  Then that DUI probation case gets swept into Court with your new law violation.  You also get violated if you fail by the due date to pay your fine, enroll and complete the designated programs or class, or fail to do any public work as required.

     On a misdemeanor DUI, with Vista DUI probation violations you can be resentenced up to the remaining fines and custody not imposed if you are found in violation.  However, an attorney can generally clear the warrant and get an extension to complete whatever was not done.  If it is a new law violation, the attorney trys to avoid additional penalties or minimze consequences.  Christoph Law Offices have been clearing probation violation warrants for over 30 years and know what needs to be done to try and avoid or minimize additional penalties.  Call 760-670-3885 for a free consultation and let them clear you violation without you going to Court.
