Fighting Against A Violation Of Probation Charge
Probation is meant to provide individuals with the ability to re-enter society with some degree of freedom. While those on probation are granted the ability to resume life to some extent, they are still required to abide by terms and conditions ordered by the court. In Florida, those who violate the terms of their probation face serious repercussions, from a return to prison or jail, to fines and new criminal charges.
For people who have been through the throes of opioid addiction and mental illness and have emerged from the criminal justice system, it can be a shock reintegrating into normal life. At The Rudman Law Group — advocates for those with mental illness and addiction — we have significant experience helping individuals and their loved ones fight charges of probation violation. We’ll investigate the full circumstances behind your situation, and help provide a clear, complete plan to move forward.
Experienced Representation In Difficult Situations
A violation occurs when an individual willfully and purposefully fails to comply with the terms of his or her probation. This can take the form of:
- Getting arrested for a new violation or offense
- Failing a drug test
- Failing to complete rehabilitation or treatment programs
- Failing to meet probation appointments
- Failing to pay the associated fines or costs related to probation
After a violation, the court may order the defendant to serve out the remainder of their original sentence.
