A: The best advice I can give is to consult an attorney. Please remember that a VOP is tried before a judge and has a lower burden of proof. In addition to the above, if you are doing to defend against an affidavit alleging a VOP you must be able to defend against ALL of the stated violations unless there and conditions that were not yet due. Proceed cautiously because the judge can sentence a defendant to anything they could have originally sentenced the person to.
