An individual may be placed on probation in lieu of receiving a prison term after violating the law in Florida, or in any state. Probation terms mandated by Florida legislation allows for the courts and probation officer to add special conditions for the defendant depending on the nature of the crime committed.
Violation of probation occurs when the terms and conditions for probation are broken. Consequences for this offense depend on a number of factors, including the nature and seriousness of the violation, if there has been a previous violation of probation, and additional circumstances that may lessen or worsen the severity of the circumstances.
Probation violators will be sentenced based on a continuum of progressively restrictive sanctions based on their needs, victim confers and community safety issues. Enhanced sanctions include additional probation terms, longer probation supervision, a jail term in addition to probation, community control supervision, prison or some combination of the above.
