Different Types of Probation Issued in Florida

In Florida, there are several types of probation that may be issued:

  • Probation - According to the Florida Department of Corrections, probation is a term of community supervision ordered by the court for a specific period. While on probation, the individual must abide by all the court’s conditions; he or she will also usually have regular visits from the supervising officer at least once per month. These visits may also occur at their home or at their job.
  • Administrative Probation - This is a non-contact supervision for offenders who are determined to be "low risk.” For these individuals, they are changed to administrative probation after completing half the term of their regular probation. They will still be subjected to periodic record checks.
  • Community Control - This is a specific form of supervised house arrest where the individual’s freedom is restricted to a certain area; the individual may be subject to weekend or holiday surveillance by officers who have limited caseloads. Many individuals on this probation are prison diversions.
  • Community Control II - This probation type resembles community control, except electronic monitoring is used as an enhancement—allowing the offender to be supervised 24/7 by private vendors. Should one of these vendors notice a curfew violation, it is immediately reported to probation staff.
  • Sex Offender Probation - This is a form of probation specifically for individuals who have been convicted of a sex crime. This is designed to be a stricter form of probation for enhanced community protection; while on sex offender probation, individuals must undergo treatment or counseling. They are also required to submit two blood specimens for registration with the DNA data bank.
  • Drug Offender Probation - For drug offenders, they will be put on a more intensive form of probation where they will be subject to personalized treatment plans, surveillance, and random drug tests. They will also be in regular contact with a correctional officer to ensure that they are drug-free.

The Two Types of Probation Violations

Not all violations are the same. In fact, there are two differences:

  • Technical Violation – In some cases, you can violate probation without committing an offense that would result in arrest. This is just some form of misbehavior that violates the terms laid out by the court but does not break the law. An example of a technical violation is a failure to report to community control.
  • Substantive Violation - A probation violation can also stem from a crime that would have resulted in an arrest regardless of whether you were on probation.

Violating Your Probation in Fort Lauderdale

If you've been accused of violating probation (VOP), your probation could be revoked entirely. Once the violation has been noticed, a warrant will be issued for your arrest; once you are brought into jail, you will not be permitted to have a bond. It is important to understand you will not have the right to a trial before a jury.

Unlike your first case where the burden of proof was on the prosecution to prove that you had committed the crime beyond a reasonable doubt, in a VOP case, the prosecutor will only need to probate that you more than likely violated your probation.
