Understanding Probation Violations: An Overview 

A violation of probation occurs when an individual, under a probationary sentence, willfully and substantially fails to adhere to the specified terms and conditions mandated by the overseeing judge.

Types of Probation in Florida

Florida recognizes five types of probation: 

  • Straight Supervised Probation:

    Regular meetings with a probation officer and adherence to specified terms. 
  • Administrative Probation:

    No probation officer meetings required.
  • Community Control:

    Highly restrictive, with supervised custody, ankle monitoring, and curfews.
  • Sex Offender Probation:

    Direct supervision, with adherence to a sex offender treatment plan.
  • Expunging:

Empowering You: Know Your Rights 

Arm yourself with knowledge about your rights when facing probation violation allegations. Patrick Wilson Law provides valuable insights into the legal implications and potential consequences, empowering you throughout the process. 

  • Types of Probation in Florida:

    If probation conditions are breached, a violation of probation (VOP) occurs, exposing individuals to the maximum sentence for the original charge. Judges evaluate various factors, including the reason for the violation, probation officer recommendations, original charges, and criminal history when determining bond.

    While zero bonds are common, our attorneys represent clients in bond hearings, presenting testimony to secure release. These hearings don't permit arguments on original charges but require an experienced defense.
  • Strategic Defenses:

    • Intent Challenges: Demonstrating unintentional violations.
    • Procedural Oversight: Identifying mistakes in the probation process.
