What Happens If I Violate My Probation In Florida?
If you violate your probation in Florida, your probation officer will prepare an affidavit. If the court signs the affidavit then a warrant is issued for your arrest for violation of probation. You can be arrested. You will likely be held without bond until your court date, and at a hearing, the court does not have to apply a reasonable doubt standard. It simply has to show, from a preponderance of the evidence, that you violated that probation, and you can suffer the same consequences, the maximum consequences of the charge with which you were put on probation the first time.
