Are you always arrested if you violate your probation?

- July 25, 2011

No, every situation is a little different. Typically, the Court will decide which cases or defendants they want to issue a notice to appear to and which ones they will issue a warrant for. If a warrant is issued, the Court will decide if a bond is appropriate for the case or not. There is no definitive way to know which cases will be issued a notice to appear. – (727) 797-9600 – 4399 35th St. N., Suite 322, St. Petersburg, FL 33714 Continue reading

Can my probation officer change the terms of my probation?

-

No, in order to change any substantive terms of your probation, you must appear before the Court and request the change.   This can be as simple as asking the Court for permission to travel.   Because the probation officer must follow the Court Order, they have no choice but to deny your request and refer you back to the Court.   This is often intimidating for people. Call our office for assistance if you need to change a term of your probation. – (727) 797-9600 – 4399 35th St. N., Suite 322, St. Petersburg, FL 33714 Continue reading


Arrested for a new charge while on probation. The State of Florida “No Filed” or dropped the new charges. Is this still be a violation if the charges have been dropped?

-

Yes, it can be. Often times the State Attorney’s Office will dismiss a violation if they have dropped charges but they can still move forward on the violation if they can provide by a Preponderance of the Evidence that a violation or new charge did occur. The case is heard by the Judge and no jury is present. Hearsay evidence is permissible but it cannot be the sole basis for the violation. – (727) 797-9600 – 4399 35th St. N., Suite 322, St. Petersburg, FL 33714 Continue reading
