The Probation Violation Process

Law enforcement, or your probation officer, will arrest you and bring you before the court. You will be entitled to a hearing to contest this violation because you have legal rights to due process.
There are many types of probation violations. Following are some examples in Florida: failure to report to your assigned probation officer, failure to appear in court, failure to attend court-ordered counseling, drug or alcohol abuse, associating with a known criminal or organization or arrest for a new criminal offense.
