In the state of Florida, the court can impose any penalty that was originally sentenced for violators of probation. That means if you were sentenced 180 days in jail (the maximum statutory penalty for a first DUI offense) before your probation, you could be sentenced 180 days in jail for violating your probation.
In addition, probation violations are based on whether the violation was willful and substantial, so it is important to gather the necessary evidence to prove that the offense was not willful or substantial enough to warrant a conviction. As Jacksonville criminal defense attorneys, the law firm of Thomas G. Fallis, P.A. can work directly with you to determine the facts of the case and defend you in court.
Unlike criminal trials, hearsay is generally admissible in probation violation proceedings. It is important to investigate all the details of the incident to ensure the facts of the case are understood, and our attorneys pride themselves on thorough investigation to build a strong case. We can interview witnesses and gather essential documents to support your case and present it convincingly in the courtroom.
