In order for the State to start the prosecution of a charge of violation of probation under Florida statute 948.06 a VOP Warrant must be issued and signed by the judge. Once the warrant is issued, you can be arrested and thrown in jail. If you think you have violated your probation, call the attorneys of Finebloom & Haenel immediately!
While you are on probation, your rights are limited. If a probation officer even thinks you have done something wrong, they can fill out a form called an “affidavit for a violation of probation.” In this affidavit, they swear under oath that you have violated probation and they set forth all of the reasons line by line. The probation officer then sends the affidavit to the judge. The judge reads the affidavit and issues a warrant based on the allegations. Usually the warrant carries a “zero bond.” This means you can’t bond out of jail if you are arrested or turn yourself in.
