Florida law allows for offenders to be placed on community control. Community control is similar to probation but the offender is required to wear a tracking device that shows where he or she is 24/7. There are also curfews as to when the offender must be at their job or home. This is in addition to any other conditions such as restitution, community service, fines, drug treatment or counseling. If you are found to be in violation of any condition it is a violation of your community control sentence and you can face the maximum jail or prison penalty allowed by law.
The tracking device an offender must wear while on community control has a monthly fee. In addition, the offender must pay for a land line telephone that is used to run the equipment. If your electric is turned off or if you cannot pay the phone bill for any month, it can violate the community control sentence and land you back in jail.
If you are violated in the Orlando area for a violation of your community control conditions you most likely will be taken to jail on a warrant with no bond. This means there is no possibility of bonding out once you reach the jail. If you do not have experienced attorneys working your case, your probation officer can recommend a severe punishment. Do not allow yourself to be sentenced to the maximum penalty! Call the aggressive and experienced attorneys at Finebloom & Haenel today at 407-218-6277.
