Examples of Probation Violations

Gavel and handcuffs - Tampa probation

Under Florida law, probation violations occur when you willfully and substantially fail to comply with the conditions of your probation. Willful and substantial violations must be shown by the state through the “greater weight of evidence.” This is a lower standard of proof than that required in other cases where the prosecutor must prove his claims beyond a reasonable doubt. Because it is much easier to be found guilty of a probation violation at a hearing, it is more critical than ever that you have a strong criminal defense attorney on your side in court.

You can violate the terms of your probation by:

  • Getting arrested for a new crime
  • Failing a drug test
  • Failing to complete a mandatory drug treatment program or diversion program
  • Failing to pay fines, fees, court costs, restitution, or other financial obligations
  • Failing to appear at a scheduled meeting with your probation officer

What to Expect at a Probation Violation Hearing

At your hearing, the court has broad discretion in deciding how to punish you. Generally, it has three options: to reinstate your probation, to alter your probation, or to revoke it. If your probation is revoked, you could be facing the maximum sentence available for the original charge that led to your probation.
