Asked in Criminal Law for Florida

Q: I have a warrant out for probation violation... How much time do they usually give you for that?

I was on probation for a misdemeanor charge and I didn't get all my fines paid in time. I also didn't get my anger management classes done because I didn't have the money. How much time do you usually spend in jail for this?

A: There is not a standard period of incarceration I can only say that the court could do anything from reinstatement to 1 year in the County Jail. Considering what the violation is, an experienced criminal attorney should be able to get additional time to allow you to complete the conditions in hope of avoiding jail time.
