Failure to Comply
Miami Probation Violation Attorney
When a person commits a criminal offense, and he/she has been convicted of the criminal offense, he/she must meet certain terms that are outlined by the court. When a person fails to meet the terms or sentences that have been outlined by the court, he/she can be charged with “failure to comply.” For example, if a person is convicted of driving under the influence, he/she may be ordered to attend a mandatory drug and alcohol treatment program within a set amount of time. If the person does not complete the treatment program, or if the person cannot prove that he/she completed the program, the court can charge him/her with failure to comply.
What Happens If I Fail to Comply?
Once a person fails to comply with court orders, he/she may face further legal action and/or penalties. People who fail to comply may be subject to monetary fines, jail time, or extensions to their current sentences.
