  • I'm on DUI probation and have to drop randoms, what if my voicemail is full when my PO calls? Can that be a VOP?

    I'm on DUI probation and am required to drop randoms. What if my VM is full when my PO calls? Can that be a violation?

    Depends on whether the court finds the violation "willful". If your voicemail is always full and your PO makes a record of it you may have a tougher time at a violation hearing than if your voice mail occasionally fills up.

    Sounds like there may be addiction issues. Probation extension may be an option but with his history, drug tests should be expected. That could result in further probation violations which add up fast when using the florida sentencing guidelines. Next thing you know your son will be scoring mandatory prison. Ask your attorney to ask judge for an alcohol and drug evaluation. Then you will find out if more supervision is realistic. Your son will be desperate and want to just get out but tell him to be patient and have his attorney really talk to him to see if he can complete probation.
