What is a non warrant VOP?

Question:

I’m on probation for 18 months; my date to get off is Feb 2017. My P.O. put my violation in on the 16th of Feb. for non payment of court costs. What do I do? And what is a non warrant VOP?

Answer:

It means that he has submitted a violation of your probation to the court and instead of requesting a warrant for your arrest, he requested that you be served with the notice and given a date and time to appear in court to explain your non payment of court costs. The best thing you should be doing right now is paying as much as the court costs as possible and hire an attorney if you can. If your able to make a substantial dent in the outstanding costs, with an attorney its possible to resolve the VOP and terminate your probation.
