Orlando Probation Violation Attorneys
Probation violations have very serious consequences in Florida. If you are convicted of a probation violation, the judge can sentence you to the maximum penalty for the crime you are on probation for. For example, if you are on probation for a third degree felony with a maximum penalty of five years in prison, the judge can sentence you to a five-year prison sentence. At The Law Office of Travis Williams in Orlando, our team has experience defending clients charged with probation violations in all Florida courts.
There are two types of probation violations: technical violations and the commission of a new offense while on probation.
Examples of technical violations are testing positive for drugs and missing a probation meeting. Many lawyers think they have to roll over and not put up a defense if their client has been charged with a technical probation violation. However, the state still has to prove that you committed the violation willfully and materially.
If you violate probation by committing a new violation, The Law Office of Travis Williams will represent you both on the probation violation and the new offense in state or federal court.
Florida judges usually issue arrest warrants without bond in probation violations, especially if the offender is on probation for a felony. This means that you will not be able to get out of jail without a bond hearing. The Law Office of Travis Williams is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to request a bond hearing if you have been arrested on a probation violation.
