Probation is difficult. The ways you can violate your Flagler County probation are almost endless. There are two basic types of Flagler County probation violations. People either commit a "technical" violation of their probation or they commit a "new law" violation. Generally the court is harder on new law violations than technical violations but a no bond warrant is possible with any violation of probation.
Technical violations can come in many forms. Common examples of a technical violation are: failure to pay fines, costs or restitution, failure to complete community service hours, failure to meet your probation officer when required to do so, failure to complete a court ordered programs such as a DUI school or anger management class, failure to obtain or maintain employment, failing a drug test, and just about anything else that your probation officer can think of to violate your probation in Flagler County.
New law violations occur when you are on probation and you get arrested and/or charged with another criminal offense. A "new law" violation can result from any new arrest or charge. One minor slip-up, like driving without a valid driver’s license can turn into a probation revocation, no bond warrant and a jail or prison sentence.
