Our Florida Law Firm Can Help You
Probation is one of many possible legal penalties facing a person convicted of a crime in Florida. In fact, defense attorneys often seek probation on behalf of their clients because probation allows the client to return to his or her life without having to spend any time in jail for a criminal charge.
When a person is placed on probation, he or she must comply with every term of the probation, including checking in with a probation officer on a regular basis. Failure to comply with the terms of probation or committing another criminal offense while on probation creates grounds for an arrest on charges of probation violation. In most cases, the presiding judge will order that the person charged with Violation of Probation be held in jail without bail.
Those charged with probation violation face further legal action and consequences, including possible reinstatement of the original sentence, which can mean jail time or additional fines. The probation sentence may also be extended and the terms may become even more restrictive.
