Alpharetta, Georgia attorney Scott Miller reviews failure to report to probation officer.

Reporting regularly to a probation officer will be one of the instructions given to a probationer by the court judge.

This regular meeting with the probation officer enables the court to follow your progress, as you serve your sentence outside of detention.

Failure to report is a serious violation of probation.  If you have serious health issues like an acute sickness, that prevents you from being at your appointment, you must inform your probation officer in advance of your scheduled meeting, that you are unable to attend. You will be required to present a doctors statement about the sickness that prevented you from being at that meeting, at your next scheduled meeting with your probation officer.
If you are unable to pay the probation fee, you must keep your appointment with the probation officer.  Failing to appear is more severe than failing to pay the fee.
