About Florida Probation Violations
Being charged with probation and community control violation is very serious. If a probation officer or any type of law enforcement officer for that matter has reasonable grounds to believe that an offender in community control has violated their terms, he or she can make an arrest without a warrant. The suspected offender would be returned to the court where probation was granted. If the court finds out that a probationer violated the terms of his probation, the trial judge is authorized to issue a warrant for his immediate arrest.
The person accused has the right to a hearing, at which the court may change, revoke or continue the defendant’s term of probation or community control. If the court takes back probation or community control, the defendant will therefore be found guilty of the original offense for which he received probation. The court may also impose the original sentence for that offense.
