A failure to comply charge refers to a person who has not upheld his or her terms of a sentence. When convicted of a crime, the defendant will often receive a sentence including fines, community service, counseling or probation. These are court-ordered obligations which must be met. If they are not met, that is the criminal offense of failure to comply.
Florida courts have cracked down on failure to comply cases by issuing warrants for the arrest of those individuals who have violated the terms of their probation or who have failed to carry out their court-ordered sentences. If you have an arrest warrant out in your name, a Florida law enforcement officer can track you down or stop you at any moment and arrest you. What affect would an arrest have on you? What affect would it have on your reputation?
If you have been charged with a failure to comply with a Florida court-ordered obligation, contact a criminal defense lawyer immediately.
