Probation is a sentence that may be imposed by the court, instead of a jail sentence. A criminal who is on probation could be considered as convicted of a crime, but has served only part (or none) of the sentence in prison. In many jurisdictions, probation is a sentencing option for misdemeanors and some less serious felonies, known as probationable offenses, but not for such felonies as capital crimes, sexual assault and many others. Offenders on probation are normally not allowed to own weapons and may be ordered to remain employed, abide by a curfew, live at a certain place, obey the orders of the probation officer and not leave the jurisdiction. Other restrictions, such as alcohol and drug restrictions, may also apply. Regular meetings with a probation office are usually mandatory.

Community Control Violations
If you or your teenaged child has been accused of a probation or community control violation, there can be serious ramifications. If a law enforcement or probation officer has justification that a person under probation or an offender in community control has violated court-ordered terms, an immediate arrest, without a warrant, can be made. Following an arrest, the alleged offender would be returned to the court where probation or community control was first granted; the trial judge would then have the authority to issue an arrest warrant.
There are typically two formal parts to expungments. The first is a request that a criminal case be sealed; this option is usually for a juvenile or first-time offender. The second is for a follow-up to ensure that the expungement has occurred pursuant to the agreement or court order. Request for expungement often comes years after the crime was committed, often after a juvenile has become an adult. Our team of lawyers can help you with terms of expungement for you or your child.
Are you being accused of obstructing justice in relation to a trial, court procedure or police investigation? You need to speak with an experienced attorney to make sure you don’t end with an unfair fine or sentence.
By definition, obstructing justice occurs when an individual performs an action or does not perform an action (depending on circumstances) that hinders law enforcement, prosecutors, courts or other governmental agencies. There are many different ways that one can cause an “obstruction of justice”, and some of the most frequent types of offenses are listed below:
• Resisting an officer
• Refusal to aid an officer
• Falsely impersonating and officer
• Possession of a concealed handcuff key
• Delivering tools to jail for an escape attempt
• Failure to appear after release on bail
• Attempting to evade law enforcement
• Offenses against police animals
• Unlawful use of police communications
• Depriving the victim or a crime medical care
As is true with any criminal offense, your freedom will be at stake if you are accused of obstructing justice. You should contact one of the skilled attorneys at Williams Jarosz, LLC now for a free evaluation of your case.
Resisting Without Violence
Similar to the crime of obstructing justice, “resisting without violence” is also a criminal offense that can result in jail time and serious fines. In the state of Florida, this is considered a misdemeanor crime, and the grounds for your arrest can be “obstructing or opposing any type of peace officer who is attempting to carry out his or her legal duty.” However, in these types of cases, the resistance offered by the accused does not involve any form or physical violence that interferes with law enforcement. If violence is included, it will be considered to be a more serious offense.
If you have been arrested for resisting without violence, you need to consult a criminal attorney now to make sure your rights are being protected, as you will likely be facing additional criminal charges along with the offense you were being arrested for. Contact a Williams Jarosz, LLC attorney now.
In the state of Florida, it is considered a criminal offense to enter or remain on another individual’s property when you don’t have permission to do so. This offense is known as trespass or trespassing. It is most often considered a misdemeanor offense, but can be considered a felony in certain situations. This is why you need to speak with an attorney at Williams Jarosz, LLC to make sure you have a full understanding of your case and the charges being held against you.
To give a simple example of what is considered trespassing, if you walk into someone’s yard because there is a mango on a tree that you want, it is considered trespassing. The act of walking into the yard is trespassing, while the intent to cross into the yard is considered to be the “intent to trespass.”
If your trespassing offense is classified as a misdemeanor, you could be facing up to 60 days in jail and fines ranging up to $500. If your trespass is considered a felony (as may be the case if you have a weapon in your possession) you could be facing 5 years in a state prison and fines up to $5,000. Don’t wait until it’s too late; speak with an experienced attorney at Williams Jarosz, LLC now.
Disorderly conduct is an offense that involves an individual acting out in such a way that creates a “breach of peace” for surrounding individuals. However, this breach of peace may not always be apparent to the one causing it, and therefore there can be some confusion when an arrest is being made or if an officer has to intervene in a situation.
There is always the argument that we are all entitled to our freedom of speech. However, there is a clear line that cannot be crossed without legal consequences. Listed below are some examples of activities that may be considered disorderly conduct by authorities:
• Brawling or fighting
• Acts that outrage the sense of public decency
• Acts that affect the peace and quiet of those who witness them
• Acts that may corrupt public morals
In certain circumstances you may even be falsely accused of disorderly conduct because an officer wants to demonstrate their authority. Whatever the case may be, you need a skilled attorney to assist you. Contact a Williams Jarosz, LLC attorney today.
Disorderly intoxication is the act of an individual becoming intoxicated and disturbing the peace and safety of others. Contrary to popular misconception, this is not generally considered a minor infraction, and will be considered a criminal offense.
In order to qualify as disorderly intoxication, it must be shown that the individual was intoxicated during the occurrence, and that a public disturbance was created. For a first offense, it will be considered a second degree misdemeanor, which can include jail time up to 60 days and $500 in fines. If you are a repeat offender, you may face penalties including a full year in jail and court-ordered rehabilitation or treatment for up to 60 days.
If you are being accused of disorderly intoxication, you need solid representation from experienced attorneys. Contact the lawyers of Williams Jarosz, LLC today for a free legal evaluation of your case. You don’t have to face these criminal charges alone, we are here to help.
