Comprehensive Guidance After Probation Violation Accusations
A probation violation occurs when you break the conditions of your probation. This can include failing to appear in court or pay fines, unauthorized out-of-state travel or not reporting to your probation officer at a scheduled date and time. Depending on the seriousness of the violation, these issues can result in significant penalties and require the help of a skilled lawyer.
If you have been arrested for a new criminal offense in Florida while on probation, a warrant for violation of probation will be entered against you. This will result in an arrest and the possibility of being held without bond.
