Courts must inform you on your probation conditions that you are allegedly in violation of. You must be given proper notice of the violation and be properly charged with the violation. The warrant or affidavit of violation must be specific and all the terms must be clear.

Types of Violations include Technical and Substantive ones and there are consequences that can result if you are violated which may include severe sanctions. These may include a jail sentence up to the maximum of the original sentencing. If you were placed on probation for a third degree felony, then violated your probation, the judge could give you 5 years in the Florida state prison.

A judge may impose additional conditions including: longer probation and more conditions such as random urine screens, community service hours, additional treatment, and classes.

There are some instances where a judge may decide to do nothing even after violating you. If the judge feels that the violation is not substantial, he may just continue you on probation and not impose any jail or additional conditions. Although this is very rare, your attorney can attempt to convince the judge that this is the most fair and just outcome.
