Accused Of Violating Probation?

For many charged with a crime in the New Orleans, Louisiana, area, the result of their case was probation. Probation allows an individual to avoid jail time through suspension for a specific duration. The length of probation for each person is different and depends on their specific situation. However, if a person violates the terms of their probation, he or she then faces additional consequences and possibly jail time.
