Defending Clients Who Have Violated Their Probation in Pinellas County

Florida’s zero-tolerance policy for probation violations is one of the reasons our jails are so overcrowded. People who may have committed a minor infraction of the terms of their probation are locked away for long stretches of time.

At Bauer Crider Kenny & Parry, our Clearwater probation violation attorneys work to bring some sanity to the system. We will attempt to show that your alleged probation violation was not a violation at all or was only a minor mistake that did not violate the spirit or intent of the rules.

Types Of Probation Violations

In the state of Florida, there are various types of probation violations that can result in consequences such as revocation of probation, imprisonment, or other additional penalties. Some common types of probation violations in Florida can include the following:

  • Failing alcohol or drug tests
  • Failure to report to a probation officer
  • Leaving the state without the given permission from the probation officer
  • Failing to pay fines, court costs, or restitution
  • Committing a new crime or getting arrested
  • Failing to complete treatment programs or court-ordered community service
  • Having possession of a firearm or other prohibited items
  • Violating curfew or other certain requirements of probation
  • Failure to complete mandated education or vocational training.

Can You Violate Probation and Not Go To Jail?

When you are arrested for a crime, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. If you are picked up for a probation violation, there is no such presumption of innocence. You can be sent to jail immediately. You are not entitled to bond. You are not entitled to a speedy trial. If the original charge was one of 15 violent offenses, you will not be released from custody until you have had a full hearing, and that may take weeks.

If a defendant on probation simply misses the deadline for paying a fee, it can result in jail for three weeks waiting for a hearing because the defendant doesn’t have a Clearwater probation violation lawyer on his or her side.
