What happens when you violate probation on a DUI, the violation being an MIP – Minor In Possession of Alcohol?
DUI dropped to a lower offence, court issued 2 yrs probation, community service, restricted license and fines.
Now person in question was picked up for MIP
What do you think will happen?
Best Answer :
Your probation will be revoked and your original sentence will be reinstated or imposed – in addition to your new charges!
Other Answer(2) :
You will go to jail for probation violation.
Depending on the judge, but basically by failing the original deal is OVER: it can mean jail (on a jail for minors), no license, more fines or a MUCH longer probation.
Most of the time when a charge is lowered toa lesser offence is based on the assumption that you wont fail your probation; once you fail your probation they can in theory up your chages to DUI again and cange your original punishment.
