In the United States, there are an incredible 5 million people today who are on probation or parole, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. In turn, the violation of probation has become an increasingly common criminal charge.
If you are charged with probation violation, it helps to know that many people have faced similar accusations, allowing our lawyers at Fulmer Law, PA, to develop experience defending these cases. Actually, the statistics related to violation of probation conviction and imprisonment are quite shocking. According to the nonprofit Justice Fellowship, one out of every two American prisoners is incarcerated because of a parole or probation violation – making up half of the total prison population.
To defend against violation of probation charges, Arthur C. Fulmer, Jr., uses a comprehensive understanding of Florida case law and statutes. Some of the most important statutes related to probation violation include two parts of the Probation and Community Control chapter under the Criminal Procedure and Corrections title: the description of violations (“Violation of probation or community control; revocation; modification; continuance; failure to pay restitution or cost of supervision”: Title XLVII, Chapter 948.06) and the provisions listing the parameters of probation (“Terms and conditions of probation”: Title XLVII, Chapter 948.03).
