South Florida Attorney For Probation Violations
Causes of Probation Violations in Miami-Dade
When you have been convicted of a crime you may have received a sentence of probation due to a number of different circumstances. If you had no prior arrests or conviction, or if the crime was relatively minor, you may have received probation as your sentence, but with strict guidelines you are expected to follow during the term of your probation. Probation can be for any length of time, from several months to several years, depending on the severity of the crime and the sentence you were given. Violating any of the requirements of your probation could result in your being sent to jail, sometimes with no prior warning if a bench warrant is issued.
Some of the causes of probation violation can include:
- Not following the guidelines of probation
- Being arrested
- Committing another crime
- Not reporting to your probation officer
- Failing to appear for a court appearance
- Unpaid fines assigned by the court
- Not completing your community service
- Not completing a rehabilitation program
- Possession of drugs
