Re: Probation Violations in Florida
I'm not sure if he is eligible for a PD in FL for a probation hearing or not. A probation hearing is different than a trial in many respects. A probation hearing is an administrative action, not an adjudication. FL may not provide PDs for administrative actions. You son has already been adjudicated and sentenced. Just some or all of that sentence was suspended in lieu of probation. Now, he has violated probation. So, he is subject to the full sentence that was previously suspended, not a new sentence for fresh charges...not saying that is going to happen, but it is possible.
Probably not. He will likely be held at least until his hearing.
Most likely. Like I said above, probably at least until his hearing. After that is up to the judge. He is subject to up to the full jail sentence for his original conviction.
