Word of the Day: PTR Warrant


PTR stands for Petition to Revoke, which in Cook County occurs as a result of a violation of probation or VOP. If a person violates the terms of their probation, the State’s Attorney, prosecutor or probation department may file a Petition to Revoke Probation (PTR) and ask the court to issue a warrant for your arrest — a PTR Warrant. A new crime committed may also elicit a PTR.

Once in court, a judge could impose a new sentence that does not depend on the original sentence. Someone with supervision could be re-sentenced to probation. A defendant originally sentenced to probation could be sentenced to jail.

Common conditions of probation include: mandatory drug testing, restrictions on where the offender can live, community service, periodic meetings with a probation officer, or random check-ups by a probation officer.
