If I'm on probation in Florida adjudication withheld and have a 2nd charge what will happen if I take a plea of more probation?
1 Answer from Attorneys
If your new case occurred after you were sentenced to probation, you can be arrested and held in jail without a bond pending the outcome of a violation of probation hearing on your 1st case. While you can be reinstated to probation, if the court finds you in violation of probation and does not reinstate your sentence, your withhold can be converted into an adjudication of guilt. This would mean that you would become a convicted felon and would need to abide by the statutory requirements that govern convicted felons, including the reporting requirements that may extend beyond the term of your sentence. I suggest you seek the counsel of your lawyer on how to proceed and what you can do to avoid these issues.
