Are you currently on misdemeanor or felony probation?  If so, the terms of your probation specify that a violation may be filed against you for any perceived non-compliance by the court.
Petitions to violate your probation often occur in Cook County for one of the following reasons:
1. New Charges:  Being arrested and charged with a new offense can be the basis to violate your probation.
2. Failure to Report:  Not communicating or meeting with your probation officer can also be considered a violation.
3. Non-Compliance:  Conditions of your sentence such as community service, SWAP, restitution, or drug/alcohol classes must be completed and failing to do so may be a violation.
