When an individual is released from jail or prison for a trial period, often due to good behavior, they are still required to be under court supervision and are considered to be on probation. In some instances, individuals can be given probation in lieu of a prison sentence. Probation is conditional and depends on the individual living up to certain expectations, following the laws of the land, and fulfilling exact requirements as laid out by the court. Individuals who are granted probation are monitored by probation officers. Any deviation or probation violation could mean additional restrictions put in place or could mean the individual would be required to serve out a prison sentence.
If you or a loved one has been charged with probation violations, we advise you consult with our firm immediately. Our attorneys will be able to rapidly review your case, evaluate the evidence against you, challenge any false accusations and build you an aggressive criminal defense. Keep in mind the consequences for probation violations are extremely severe in the state of Florida and in most cases a violation means you could be sent to jail on a no-bond status while you wait for your hearing. If the state is able to prove your probation violation, you may be facing the maximum sentence for your original charge.
