When you are arrested and charged for DUI, you may be able to get probation for your sentence, depending on the circumstances, or it may be part of your sentence that includes certain steps you must complete or adhere to until the terms of your probation are met. This time period can be from 6 months to 1 year. If you have violated your DUI probation, consult with a Tampa DUI defense attorney right away, as there may be a bench warrant issued for your arrest.
Following a DUI conviction, some of the terms you may be required to meet are restricted driving, completing an alcohol abuse class, paying certain fines or not driving for a set number of days. If you fail to meet the terms of the probation, your probation officer may request from a judge that a no bond warrant be issued for your arrest. A knowledgeable attorney from our office can take the necessary defensive steps to avoid your going to jail and facing other penalties by filing a motion to surrender.
