If you are placed on probation, the court will provide you with a set list of conditions that must be met to stay on probation. Remember, probation is a privilege, not a right. If you violate the conditions of your probation, you could have it revoked, and you could finish the rest of your sentence (and then some) in jail. Some conditions you may be required to follow include:
If your probation officer feels you are not meeting the conditions listed in your probation, then he or she can arrest you with a warrant, and you will have to go to court. These cases are not like your original court case, and you will have to prove to the judge that you either did not violate the terms of your probation or that you deserve a chance to remain on probation.
In the event you meet all terms of probation, and you have paid all court fines, you may be qualified for a termination of probation. This requires the assistance of a criminal defense attorney and could mean an elimination of all conditions associated with your probation.
If your probation officer has cited you for a VOP, do not wait. Contacting a criminal defense attorney could be the difference between staying on probation and going back to jail. Our West Palm Beach probation violation lawyers at Farkas & Crowley can help you with your VOP case.
