Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Do you know what the basis of the warrant was or when it was issued? Did you complete probation?
I did not start probation at all. I know the case was about cert. as an EMT. I don't think I appeared in court. I think I was in movement to Altanta,Ga at the time
Is the warrant from a criminal matter? If you were placed on probation and never reported, you would have absconded in the eyes of the court
I know it is A probation Vilation,but I never started and I would of Finish
If a warrant has been issued, it needs to be lifted and you would need to appear, to resolve the pending case. An attorney can file a motion on your behalf or you can do it yourself and ask that the case be reset and that you can appear. Here is a link to the Broward County Clerk of Court and you can search your name to see what open cases appear. http://www.clerk-17th-flcourts.org/Clerkwebsite/BCCOC2/OdysseyPA/CaseSearch.aspx?SelectCourt=true&DisplayCitation=yes&DisplayHearing=yes&DisplayType=Criminal&SearchType= When a defendant violated probation, they can either resolve the violation or take it to a final VOP hearing. The court has the discretion to either reinstate and extend the probation and add additional terms/conditions or revoke it and place the defendant in jail. It all depends on the basis of the violation and other mitigating factors. Until the defendant appears in court, there is no way of knowing what the offer will be. Moreover, if there is a no bond hold on the warrant, it is not likely that it would be lifted and the defendant would need to turn himself in and wait in jail , until his court date. A bail bond company can be contacted, to find out of a bond is on the warrant or the defendant go look at the file, at the court house, to read the warrant and basis for the violation.
