Probation Absconder Law and Legal Definition

Probation Absconder is an offender who is under probation supervision but his/her whereabouts is not known. S/he would have left the jurisdiction of the court without permission of the court or probation officer. As it is not known where s/he is, and as s/he has acted in violation of the probation conditions s/he is also called as probation offender. As penalty for absconding, an absconder’s probation may be revoked and the active sentence will be invoked.
