We Can Help!
The Law Office of Lee Meadows has over 36 years assisting people needing guidance regarding Probation Violations.
When you are placed on probation, you are advised of the conditions of your probation by the judge or a probation officer. Should you disobey the conditions, you run the risk of having your probation violated. Violations of probation can be either technical violations or substantive violations.
Examples of technical violations include:
- Changing your address without permission,
- Failure to pay court costs or fines,
- Missing a probation meeting,
- Being late to a probation meeting,
- Not completing court-ordered classes or other court-ordered conditions
Substantive violations of probation occur when a person on probation commits a new criminal offense.
Penalties for Violating Probation
If you violate your probation a judge can do one of three things:
- Reinstate your Probation,
- Modify your Probation, or
- Revoke your Probation.
Remember, if a judge revokes your probation, Florida law allows the judge to impose the maximum penalty for the charge you were placed on probation for.
