What happens when you stop going to probation and taking urine tests for a DUI? 3 Answers as of March 18, 2015

My son, age 29, was arrested for a DUI 18 months ago. He was good about going to DUI classes, taking his UA's, & going to probation meetings. However, he hasn't done anything for about the last 6 months. He received an email that he has an active warrant for his arrest. What happens now?

He will be advised of his rights and whether or not he wants to admit to the violation of probation. If he denies, they will set a hearing date to determine whether or not he violated probation. If he admits or is found to have violated the judge can either reinstate the probation or send him to jail on the original charge. Consult an attorney ASAP! Good luck!

Well, he has to clear up the warrant. It would be good if he could get back into compliance too. Some judges give a day of jail for each hour of community service he has not done. Results depend on the judge and jurisdiction, but usually, they just want you to complete your classes, do community service and stay out of trouble. They may add some community service or a few days in jail if he is otherwise complete by sentencing.

Since there is an active warrant, he will ultimately be arrested on the warrant, have to post a bond and be sentenced for violating his probation.
