About Probation Violations in Florida
If any type of law enforcement officer or probation officer has reasonable grounds to believe that a person under probation or an offender in community control has violated their terms, he or she can make an immediate arrest or inform law enforcement to make an arrest, without a warrant. After the arrest, the suspected offender would be returned to the court where probation or community control was originally granted.
A person accused of a probation violation or violation of community control has the right to a hearing, at which time the court may change, revoke or continue the defendant's term of probation or community control. If the court revokes probation or community control, the defendant will therefore be found guilty of the original offense for which he or she received probation. The court may also impose the original sentence for that offense.
