In Lackawanna, Luzerne, Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties it is common for judges to place people on probation when they are convicted of a crime.  Sometimes following a jail sentence a person receives “special sauce” or a “tail”.  These terms refer to a period of probation that must be served following a jail or prison sentence.  Periods of probation are often served with strict rules in place such as:

  • Curfew
  • Obey all laws
  • No drugs or alcohol
  • No contact with the victim
  • Obtain employment
  • Attend 12 step meetings
  • Attend drug and alcohol counseling
  • Attend anger management counseling

When a person fails to follow any of the terms of their probation they can be charged with violating probation (Gagnon violations).

Judges feel disrespected when people don’t follow their orders. In Pennsylvania the probation department is an extension of the court and the rules of probation are considered court orders. If you or someone you love has violated the conditions of probation, you will need an experienced probation violation attorney in Scranton.
