Violation of Probation Criminal Defense Lawyer in Tampa Bay & Brandon, Florida
If you have been placed on probation for a charge, you know there are many conditions of that probation that you must follow. Typically, payment of fines, court costs, restitution, and investigative costs are conditions. You may also have to complete certain classes, or counseling and treatment. General conditions may include regular reporting to your probation officer, curfews, drug tests, maintaining employment and staying out of trouble with the law.
With so many conditions, it can be easy to violate probation. Many times, people simply cannot afford the financial obligations. Other times, a bad urine screen, or even a new charge result in the violation of probation. Since probation is an alternative to jail or prison, violating probation can lead to severe consequences. If found guilty of the violation, you face up to the maximum sentence for the charge.
Violation of Probation charges cases can be defended in many ways depending on the particular circumstances of your case. In some cases, completing technical conditions quickly prior to hearing will allow your attorney to negotiate for reinstatement of probation. In other cases, getting a reduction or dismissal of a new law violation can get the VOP dismissed. A Tampa Probation Violation defense attorney can discuss your options based on the facts of your case.
