Probation in a Criminal Case

Following sentencing in a criminal case, a defendant, by and through his or her Fort Lauderdale criminal attorney, may be placed on probation. In ordinary circumstances, the defendant may be required to meet with the probation officer once a month, or more frequently in some cases. In a few situations, the defendant may also be placed on a non-reporting probation, which does not require him or her to meet with the probation officer.

At the end of the probation period, typically the defendant is required to show that he or she complied with the conditions of the probation. The defendant’s record will also be checked for any instances of further criminal activity. Fort Lauderdale criminal attorneys can offer legal advice to the defendants to help them meet the terms of probation appropriately. DUI cases in Fort Lauderdale require that certain special conditions be met before completion of the term.
