What is a Probation Violation in Florida?
There is no question that probation violations are serious offenses in Florida. At Hager & Schwartz, P.A. we defend clients facing these charges throughout all of Miami-Dade and Broward County, as well as in the surrounding areas. Representation by a skilled attorney is a must, as judges and prosecutors will push for harsh sentencing and increased criminal penalties for probation violations. To address this important issue, our firm has built a dedicated website to explain, in detail, every aspect of probation violations. Our firm handles cases throughout South Florida including Miami, Miami-Dade County.
There are a number of ways that probation may be violated. Following are some examples of potential Florida probation violations:
- Failure to report to a probation officer
- Failure to pay a court-ordered fine
- Failure to pay restitution as ordered by the court
- Failure to perform community service
- Violation of a restraining order or order of protection
- Being arrested or charged with a new crime
- Drug or alcohol abuse
Probation vs. Community Control Violations
Community Control is a form of house arrest, and this penalty may be imposed for up to 2 years in Florida. Often house arrest will be followed by probation, which will require mandatory reporting to your probation officer as well as other requirements and restrictions. Violating Community Control is a serious offense, just as a probation violation. If convicted, the offender may face imprisonment as his or her house arrest or probationary period is revoked.
Call a Miami Probation Violation Lawyer
If you are suspected or accused of violating the terms of your probation, you may face immediate arrest and may be held without bond until the case is resolved. You are entitled to a hearing, however, and a defense attorney can assist you with this. Early intervention by a skilled lawyer can at times mean that a hearing is not necessary because the charges are dropped or the matter is resolved before it can go to court.
