Have you Received Notice of a Probation Violation or Revocation Hearing?

If so, you could be sitting in a Florida jail for weeks or months waiting for a judge to hear the case. Probation is a form of leniency that can be revoked at any time if the conditions of probation are violated, but it is common for people to violate the terms of their probation without realizing it. However, the burden of proof is low, and the prosecution only has to prove the violation by a "preponderance of evidence." It is critical that you contact a probation violations lawyer who will vigorously argue that you should be granted additional time to come into compliance with the terms presented by your probation officer. If you have been accused of a probation violation in Florida, we will work to have the original probation order reinstated.

If the prosecution suspects that you have violated the terms of your probation, you can be arrested without a warrant and brought before the court. At a violation or revocation hearing, the prosecution will present evidence of a technical or substantive violation of the terms and conditions of your probation. However, unless the state can prove that you acted willfully or that the offense is considered to be substantial, a violation does not exist. When a failure to comply was due to factors outside your control, such as car trouble, there is no willful or deliberate action. Our criminal defense attorneys will fight to eliminate or have the charges against you reduced while searching for ways to soften any sanctions imposed by the court.
