A: If you have been sentenced to 12 months with 12 months suspended and you are accused of absconding while on probation, there can be serious consequences. Absconding refers to the act of deliberately avoiding supervision or failing to report to your probation officer as required. Consequences for absconding can include revocation of the suspended portion of your sentence, leading to potential imprisonment for the full 12 months. Additionally, a warrant may be issued for your arrest, and you may face additional charges related to probation violations.
