Violations of probation or violations of community control are very serious matters that should not be taken lightly. What may seem like the benefit of a great bargain during the plea phase of your case when you avoided jail or prison time by agreeing to go on probation or community control can now become significantly worse. You could also have been found guilty at trial by a judge or jury and as result placed on probation. Should the court find that you violated probation or community control, you will be exposed to the same amount of time you were facing originally. For example, if you were placed on probation for a third-degree felony, you could be facing up to five (5) years in state prison.
