Will I get in trouble for drinking if I was a witness for an assault on my friend if I am on probation? 1 Answers as of June 29, 2011
My friend got assaulted when we were drinking. I am on probation for drinking and I just talked to a detective about the incident and I told her that we were all drinking. She was aware of my probation and she told me that was not going to tell my probation officer, but I am still very nervous. Will I get a probation violation? All insight is beneficial, thank you.

If a condition of your probation included no use of alcohol, such use may certainly result in a violation. Ultimately your probation officer has the discretion to decide when a substantial violation has occurred.
