Will I Be Arrested For Probation Violation At The Supervisor’s Hearing?
Generally no. It is very rare that people actually get arrested at their probation supervision hearing. If your probation officer and their supervisor have agreed to address your violations at a supervisor’s hearing instead of filing a formal violation report with the court and requesting a warrant, this is because they want to try and remedy the situation without having to get the court or the judge involved. A supervisor’s hearing is usually the last step that a probation officer will take before requesting a warrant and it’s an opportunity to get back on track if you have fallen off. I often represent clients who hire me while they are in custody after they have been arrested on their motion to revoke their probation and the motion and warrant were filed because the defendant failed to show up to their probation supervision hearing.
Whenever I ask clients why they didn’t show up to the supervisor’s hearing, they often tell me the same thing that they didn’t show up because they were scared that they were going to get arrested. Getting arrested at a supervisor’s hearing is extremely rare. It’s almost unheard of. But getting arrested for failing to appear at a supervisor’s hearing is a very common occurrence. It’s just about guaranteed that if you fail to show up to your supervisor’s hearing, you are going to get a warrant (not a summons) issued for your arrest. If you receive a notice that your probation officer has requested a supervisor’s hearing and you receive a formal notice that you’ve been scheduled for a supervisor’s hearing, we almost always recommend that you should attend that hearing but when in doubt, consult with an attorney who is experienced in handling these matters in your jurisdiction.
