Probation Violations Lawyer in Daytona Beach
Defending Clients Who Have Violated Their Probation in Volusia County
Probation is considered to be a privilege, allowing people who commit crimes to remain free from jail and stay active members of society. To ensure that they stay on the right track though, there are strict rules that must be followed, and any breach is considered a violation. When a person violates any of the various terms of their probation that were set forth by the court, there is the potential for them to face the maximum sentence they could have received before being placed on probation.

Types Of Probation Violations in Florida
In Florida, probation violations normally fall into two main categories: technical violations and substantive violations. Technical violations include any failure to comply with the court’s conditions, such as failing drug tests or missing scheduled appointments with the probation officer. Substantive violations involve committing new crimes while on probation.
Florida Probation Violation Penalties
The possible penalties for violating probation in Florida may vary widely depending on a variety of factors, such as the type and severity of the offense committed and the offender’s prior criminal record. In general, technical violations will result in sanctions, including but not limited to verbal/written warnings, fines, additional court costs and fees, longer supervision periods, or even up to 60 days of incarcerated without any further conviction. Substantive felony violations can result in revocation of probation combined with full completion of the original sentence imposed upon the first conviction.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: If I’ve Been Arrested, What Rights Do I Have?A: In our country, being arrested does not deprive you of the many rights you have as a citizen. When you were arrested, you should have been informed of your Miranda Rights. You may ask the police officer why you are being arrested and can refuse to answer questions regarding the charges. You have the right to an attorney and the right to a fair and speedy trial. Using a qualified and experienced Daytona Beach criminal defense attorney will work to your advantage in ensuring your rights are protected.
Why Should I Hire an Attorney to Represent Me?
In the case of Buckmaster & Ellzey, we have prosecuted thousands of cases as an Assistant State Attorney. On the side of criminal defense, we have defended hundreds of individuals, such as you, that have faced charges for criminal offenses. Having served on both sides gives us a unique opportunity to fight for our clients.
We understand how prosecutors operate, the types of evidence that they will bring forth and what arguments they are likely to pursue in a criminal case. This first-hand knowledge allows us to better prepare and successfully resolve cases.
What Are the Differences Between a Misdemeanor and a Felony?Generally, misdemeanors are considered minor offenses. The fines for them will be relatively small and any time spent in jail will be in terms of weeks or months, not years. A felony conviction can result in steep fines, probation, parole and prison sentences for years. They can remain on your permanent record and may adversely affect future educational and employment opportunities. With the assistance of an attorney who is willing to aggressively defend your rights, felony charges can sometimes be reduced to misdemeanors.
What Happens Now That I’ve Been Charged With an Offense?The first step will be what is known as an arraignment. A judge will tell you the charges against you and there are many decisions that will need to be made at this time, such as how you will plea to the charges, what bail will be set at and others. We understand that facing criminal charges can be tough and would like you to take advantage of our experience to help you successfully navigate through the criminal justice system.
What Is the Difference Between Contested and Uncontested Divorce?There are two types of divorce in Daytona Beach: contested and uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce is typically preferred because they can usually be completed with far less hassle and in far less time. However, to go through the uncontested divorce process, the couple must reach an agreement on all significant divorce-related issues. These issues include: • Property division • Debt allocation • Alimony • Child support • Child custody • Visitation When there is disagreement over one or more of these issues, the couple will need to go through the contested divorce process. In such cases, the couple will either need to hire a divorce mediator to help them through the negotiation process or have the family court decide for them.
