Probation Violation Lawyer in Fort Lauderdale

Probation can be a penalty for a variety of offenses. Often, it is coupled with other sentences such as jail time and fines. Probation terms have strict rules that the individual must follow throughout the duration of the period. The person on probation works closely with a probation officer and must regularly check in with him or her.

Depending on your charge and sentence, you could face probation for up to 15 years. Most probation periods last at least three years. Among the many rules associated with probation, you will have to keep a job, allow the probation officer to visit your home, and pay restitution for your crimes.

Types of probation

There are multiple forms of probation in Florida. The court will impose one based on your crime. These include:
  • Standard probation
  • Administrative probation
  • Drug offender probation
  • Sex offender probation
  • Community control, often known as house arrest
If you have been charged with a probation violation, you need an experienced attorney to represent you. Set up a free consultation with The Law Offices of R. David Williams, P.A. Our Fort Lauderdale probations violation lawyer can review your defense options.

Common Ways That Offenders Violate Their Probation

Not adhering to your probation terms can quickly land you in jail or prison. Even minor slip-ups can have drastic consequences and threaten your freedom. If you are on probation, you must remain vigilant and follow all the rules and court orders.

Failing to submit to a drug or alcohol screening is a common violation. These guidelines are often part of probation, especially in cases that involve drugs and alcohol in the first place, such as DUIs. The court may require you to take drug tests and submit to alcohol screenings frequently. Missing or failing even one of these can lead to a probation violation.

Failing to pay restitution to the court is a violation as well. When you are sentenced to probation, the court will determine the amount and frequency of these payments. Other common violations are failing to report a change of address, failing to meet with your probation officer, or being arrested for another crime.

The Differences Between Probation And Parole

Some people confuse probation with parole, but there are important differences. Probation is an alternative punishment to incarceration. A judge may sentence you to five years of probation, for example, rather than send you to prison for one year.

Parole, on the other hand, refers to the early release of inmates from prison on account of their good behavior, and is determined by a parole board.
