If you are considering entering a negotiated plea to a probation or community control sentence in Brevard County, Florida for a felony or misdemeanor offense, then you should carefully consider the following:
* The advantages of agreeing to a probation sentence in Brevard County, FL is that, for many people, probation is a way to escape having to go to jail or prison. In addition, if placed on probation, you may be afforded the opportunity of applying for early termination of that probation after having completed all special conditions, and after you have served at least one half of your probation without violating.
* The danger in agreeing to a probation sentence in Brevard County for either a misdemeanor or felony offense is that, if you violate the terms and conditions of your probation, you may be arrested on a violation warrant, held without bond pending the outcome of a hearing, and then sentenced up to the statutory maximum jail or prison sentence for the original offense.
* If you have been sentenced to probation in Florida, several standard conditions of supervision under Florida law may apply. These conditions may include:
* The Court will also impose certain, special conditions of your probation, which are usually negotiated as a part of your sentence before you enter the plea. These can include one or more of the following:
