The Judge has several options. The Judge can impose a sanction, which is a form of discipline. Common sanctions include time in jail; increased reporting to the court, if bench probation is ordered; substance abuse testing; or may include revocation of probation.
The Judge can also refer the person to services based on his or her problems and needs. Common services include drug and alcohol treatment, counseling, or education.
If the offender does not agree to accept a sanction, there will be a hearing before the Court.
If an offender is not reporting, the Judge may also issue a warrant for the offender’s arrest.
