What To Know About Probation Violations In The State Of Florida
A violation of the terms of your probationary period is a serious offense in the state of Florida. Judges and prosecutors tend to take probation violations very seriously, meaning you will need an experienced lawyer that will analyze every aspect of your case and prepare a good legal defense for you.
Common examples of violations include but are not limited to:
- Not reporting to a probation officer
- Not paying court-ordered fines
- Not paying court-ordered restitution
- Refusing to perform court-ordered community service
- Violating the terms of a restraining or protection order
- Being arrested or charged with a new crime
- Drug or alcohol abuse/use
What’s The Difference Between Probation Violations & Community Control Violations?
In the state of Florida, an individual may be sentenced to Community Control, more commonly known as “house arrest.” Often times, a Community Control sentence will be placed on top of a probation sentence. A Community Control sentence also requires mandatory reporting to a probation officer and may be accompanied by additional requirements and restrictions. As is the case with violating probation, violating Community Control can result in imprisonment or a longer house arrest/probation sentence.
