Q: What is a VOP?

A: VOP is short for Violation of Probation.  When the judge imposes a criminal sentence it typically will include probation or incarceration.  Probation is a time when the courts are actively watching a person to make sure they are complying with the court order.  If a person fails to comply with the court order a “Violation of Probation” is reported to the judge.  The judge could issue a VOP warrant or a notice for the person to appear back in front of the judge to answer for the violated the probation.  A violation of probation is extremely serious and a person can go to jail or prison for a violation.  Contact your experienced St. Petersburg VOP attorney today to put together your best case.
