Brandon VOP Attorneys: Will my Probation Get Reinstated?

Many Brandon VOP Attorneys are asked this question. This is a very commonly asked question by those facing a VOP.  Unfortunately like so many things with the law, there is no simple answer.  We can assure you that consulting with our Brandon VOP Attorneys prior to your hearings will put you in the best situation to be reinstated on probation.  Ultimately, it will deal primarily with your probation officer’s recommendation, your prior history, the type of the violation, how long you have been on probation, what conditions you have satisfied, etc.

A lot of what will occur at your VOP hearing will depend on the county you are in because each county varies so much.  The State Attorney’s Office in Polk County generally heavily relies on the recommendation of the probation officer.  This is just another reason it is critical to remain on good terms with your probation officer during the pendency of your time on probation.   While a technical violation in Tampa will go before Judge Perry, who will make his own determination based on your answers to his unique, focused questioning and prior history.  A substantive violation in Tampa will result in you going back to your prior judge that handled the original case.
