What should I do if I was charged with failure to comply with a probation order?

If I was never given a copy of the probation order, and the probationary period expired before I was charged, can my actions be considered a breach of probation? I never received notice.

    I don't know if that will be a valid defense. It could depend on why you didn't receive the probation order. If it was your fault for not obtaining your probation order, that will not be a valid defense. Otherwise, it is a technical defense and you never know. However, contact your lawyer and see if the violation can be worked out, especially as it sounds, you had already completed the terms of your probation.
