The overwhelming majority of folks alleged to have violated their probation in Tampa, Florida through a technical violation of probation appear in front of Judge Perry. Appearing before Judge Perry is an experience unlike any other for most criminal defendants, unless they are properly prepared for such an appearance. For example, nearly 99% of criminal defendants, who previously pled, were asked absolutely no unique or case specific questions about their underlying charges. I can nearly guarantee that Judge Perry will ask questions specifically to you and your case. For example, he may ask questions about the alleged victim, where someone got the drugs, etc.
Furthermore, he is extremely concerned with positive drug screens while individuals are on probation. Again, I can nearly guarantee you that he will ask about where someone got their drugs from, if they fail a drug test on probation. He may even inquire about how much money was spent on the drugs and will most certainly attempt to locate the dealer through his mugshot database and post them on the large television on the wall in the courtroom. This is an absolutely terrifying experience for most, but being prepared will make the situation much more bearable and productive in supporting our case.
