If you are found to be in violation of your probation, either after a hearing or after entering an admission, the court can sentence you to any sentence that could have originally been imposed, which means you can receive the statutory maximum sentence for that particular offense(s).
There is no jury trial and the burden of proof is merely a preponderance of the evidence (not the higher proof beyond a reasonable doubt standard) in a violation of probation case. As a result, prosecutors often have an easier time showing that the violation of probation occurred.
The Florida Department of Corrections supervises different types of probation, including community control, sex offender probation, and drug offender probation.
