Fighting the Odds Stacked Against You

Since you are already on probation, you will have even less leeway in the court.

For example, you will be stripped of your right to a jury trial during your violation hearing. You will not have a right to a bond while waiting for your hearing and your guilt does not have to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. You may also be forced to testify against yourself, making it even more difficult to fight your charges. With these factors stacked against you, it is much easier to prove you violated probation.

Although these issues may make your case more difficult, our probation violation lawyers may be able to employ effective defense strategies to secure a positive outcome. This may include providing examples of your good character, challenging the alleged violation itself, or bringing to light a violation of your rights. Carefully reviewing your case will enable our criminal defense lawyers to determine the best approach.

When a defendant is placed on probation in Florida, they must abide by specific terms to avoid further penalties:

  • Reporting with a probation officer at regular intervals
  • Attending drug or alcohol treatment / counseling
  • Staying away from known criminals
  • Keeping a clean record, such as no arrests or criminal charges
  • Abstaining from alcohol and drugs

Violating any of these terms may result in probation violation accusations, which may be based solely upon a probation officer's word. Fortunately, a person on probation deserves due process of the law, which means we are allowed to help you fight your charges.
