Community Control Violations

The State of Florida has imposed a stringent community control program. Community control violations are similar to probation violations, but for many types of crimes, these violations carry with them serious penalties for offenders. Florida criminal defense attorneys can help defendants that have been charged with these types of violations. Community control may be ordered by the court for domestic violence offenses, or as part of sentencing for other types of offenses.

 

In some cases, offenders who violate community control orders may be required to serve time in jail or prison. The seriousness of the violation depends a great deal on the type of crime committed, as well as the situation surrounding the incident. Florida community control violations may be the result of misunderstandings about the law or the order itself. This is why it is always a good idea to clarify the details of sentencing with a good Florida criminal defense attorney.

 

Florida Community Control Laws

One of the caveats of being in community control in the state of Florida is that law enforcement has the right to make an arrest, or order an arrest, at any time for a violation of their community control order without the need for an arrest warrant. This opens the door to all kinds of abuse on the part of law enforcement. It can also mean additional time behind bars, as well as added court fees and fines. Florida criminal defense attorneys help stand up for their clients rights.

 

After being arrested for a community control violation, the subject is returned to the court that had jurisdiction over the original violation. This would be the court that handled the case where community control was ordered as a type of sentencing. Every person accused of violating a community control order in the state of Florida has the right to a hearing.

 

At this hearing, the judge may change, revoke, or continue the term of community control. The judge's decision to revoke the sentence, change it, or continue depends a great deal on the evidence presented, as well as the situation surrounding the arrest. Having a good Florida criminal defense attorney can mean the difference between your freedom and substantial time behind bars in such a situation.

 

If the judge decides to revoke the defendant's community control sentence, the defendant will also be found guilty of the original offense that they were sentenced to community control for. This means that the original sentence of jail or prison time may also be invoked. If you or a family member are being faced with community control violations, let an experienced Florida criminal defense attorney help sort it out for you. Call T. Andrew Marks to discuss your case over the phone or schedule a free consultation.
