Violation of Probation

Violation of Probation Attorneys in Stuart, FL 

Violated Probation? We Can Help.

Lance P. Richard, P.A. works hard to show the prosecutor and the court that you are more than another violation of probation case to be resolved. By understanding the particular facts and circumstances of your case, judges and prosecutors often become more willing to give your case careful consideration for reinstatement so that you may have another chance to complete the terms of probation.

Probation In Florida

“Probation” is a legal supervision program ordered by a court under certain circumstances when a person enters a plea to certain “eligible” types of crimes. If you are put on probation, a Probation Officer will monitor if you comply with the court-ordered conditions.

A person placed on probation has a different status than an ordinary citizen and may be subject to warrantless searches. Upon the termination of the period of probation, the probationer shall be released from probation and may have the adjudication withheld for the offense for which probation was allowed.

If the probationer has performed satisfactorily, has not been found in violation of any terms or conditions of supervision, and has met all financial sanctions imposed by the court, they might be eligible for an early termination or modification of probation.

Forms of Supervision

The 2011 Florida Statute 948.06 defines the following forms of supervision to be administered by the Department of Corrections:

  • “Administrative probation”: A form of noncontact supervision in which an offender who presents a low risk of harm to the community may, upon satisfactory completion of half the term of probation, be transferred by the Department of Corrections to nonreporting status until expiration of the term of supervision.
  • “Community control”: A form of intensive, supervised custody in the community, including surveillance on weekends and holidays, administered by officers with restricted caseloads. Community control is an individualized program in which the freedom of an offender is restricted within the community, home, or non-institutional residential placement, and specific sanctions are imposed and enforced.
  • Criminal quarantine community control”: Intensive supervision, by officers with restricted caseloads, with a condition of 24-hour-per-day electronic monitoring, and a condition of confinement to a designated residence during designated hours.
  • Drug offender probation”: A form of intensive supervision which emphasizes treatment of drug offenders in accordance with individualized treatment plans administered by officers with restricted caseloads. Caseloads should be restricted to a maximum of 50 cases per officer in order to ensure an adequate level of staffing.
  • “Probation”: A form of community supervision requiring specified contacts with parole and probation officers and other terms and conditions as provided in s. 948.03.
  • “Community residential drug punishment center”: A residential drug punishment center designated by the Department of Corrections. The Department of Corrections shall adopt rules as necessary to define and operate such a center.
  • “Sex offender probation” or “sex offender community control”: A form of intensive supervision, with or without electronic monitoring, which emphasizes treatment and supervision of a sex offender in accordance with an individualized treatment plan administered by an officer who has a restricted caseload and specialized training. An officer who supervises an offender placed on sex offender probation or sex offender community control must meet as necessary with a treatment provider and polygraph examiner to develop and implement the supervision and treatment plan, if a treatment provider and polygraph examiner specially trained in the treatment and monitoring of sex offenders are reasonably available.
