What Types of Post-Conviction Options Are Available in Florida?
In Florida, several different post-conviction relief options are available.
Our Orlando attorney can help you pursue any of the following:
Early termination of probation: Being placed on probation is an opportunity to avoid incarceration. If
you're put on probation, you will be ordered to complete certain terms
and conditions. You may also be required to refrain from engaging in specific
behaviors. If you abide by all requirements, you might be eligible to
seek early termination of your probation.
To determine your eligibility, courts may ask the following:
- Have you completed at least one-half of your probation period?
- Have you completed all of the court-ordered terms and conditions?
- Have you satisfied your financial obligations (fines, court costs, costs of supervision, restitution)?
- Did you otherwise stay out of trouble while you were being supervised?
If you can answer "yes" to all of the questions above, you might be eligible for early termination of probation. Contact us to learn more about this option.
- Violation of probation: You might have had numerous terms and conditions of probation placed upon you and inadvertently violated one. In such a situation, you could be accused of committing an offense and have your probation revoked. If you are facing revocation, call us today to discuss your case. Our post-conviction lawyer will fight for your release from bond and determine what options are available to work toward your continued release from custody.
- Seal and expunge: At the conclusion of your criminal case, you might find yourself fortunate enough to have either had your charges dismissed or been acquitted by a jury of your peers. If that happened, you might be eligible to petition the State of Florida to have your record expunged. Speak with our experienced attorney to help determine whether you are eligible for this type of relief and get guidance through the process.
