Sarasota Probation Violation Defense Attorney
Learn How to Protect Your Rights Today
When you are convicted of a criminal offense, depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be granted probation to avoid or lessen jail time. It might initially seem as a total reprieve and you could be thinking that you are essentially free.
However, all probationary periods will have strict guidelines established by the court that you must adhere to at all times. One violation of your probation, no matter how slight, could sentence you to the maximum penalty of your original crime as well as further fines.

What constitutes a probation violation?
The specific details of your initial conviction and the crimes pertaining to it will alter your probation's regulations. You will likely be assigned a probation officer to monitor your actions and determine if you are abiding by the rules. As a minimal violation can lead to serious penalties, it is important for you to be aware of everything that might be considered a break, such as:
- Missing a court date
- Failing to report to your probation officer
- Owing fines and penalty fees
- Interacting with illegal drugs or criminals
- Traveling out of state
- Committing any crime
Can You Get a Bond for a Probation Violation in Florida?
You can get a bond when there is a pending violation of probation. If the violation is not admitted by the probationer or offender, the court may commit him or her or release him or her with or without bail to await further hearing. There is a statutory provision allows a judge to make a decision as to whether or not to grant a bond to a person accused of violating their probation. If you are on probation for a non-violent offense, you are much more likely to get a bond than someone who is on probation for a violent offense. Also, if it your first violation, you are much more likely to get a bond for your first violation than you are for subsequent violations. Those with technical violations are more likely to get a bond than those with new law violations.
