I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of criminal law experience. It is a pleasure to assist you today.
Florida law does not limit conviction of a criminal offense outside of Florida, relative to a probation violation. One must only be convicted of a criminal offense to trip the Reoffender Act.
As such, in all likelihood, she will fall under the Reoffender Statutes relative to the new offense and her probation.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Please rate my answer positively as well.
