This is a very nuanced
The D.A. is going to argue that the probation already begun.
Your attorney would then likely argue that probation is essentially a sentence
but with you out an about, and just like a sentence does not begin until later on (if you have several days after sentencing to turn yourself in in order to put affairs in order), then likewise the probation does not begin until the official date.
, an arrest or even a conviction from an arrest on the day before probation began is not a violation, but it would be up to the Judge.IMPORTANT INFO
