According to Wisconsin probation revocation law as established in the longstanding case of State ex rel. Plotkin v. H&SS Department, even if your agent can prove you violated a condition of your supervision, your agent should consider alternatives to probation or parole supervision revocation.

- confinement is necessary to protect the public from further criminal activity by the offender; or
- the offender needs correctional treatment most effectively provided if the offender is confined; or
- it would unduly depreciate the seriousness of the violation if probation were not revoked.
