For the state to prove a Daytona Beach VOP the conduct must either violate the terms of your probation or violate the law. The state must also show that the violation was willful and substantial. We often see the state try to go forward with a violation of probation based on failing to pay the cost of supervision. The state cannot prove the violation unless they can prove that you had the ability to pay. This is a common example of a violation that might be substantial but is not willful. Hearsay is admissible in a VOP hearing but a conviction cannot be based on hearsay alone. The state must show some independent evidence of a violation. These are just a few of the potential defenses to a Daytona Beach violation of probation. Our attorneys understand how to defend a Daytona Beach VOP and know how they will be prosecuted. We can help you achieve the best possible result in your case.
