Does probation in fl know that you got a speeding ticket out of county?

Is it a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, does it make a sound?
I’m tired of always answering. Mr. Haber is correct.
This is not solicited legal advice and establishes no attorney client privilege between the questioner and Michael M. Stover
Failure to secure permission to leave the county while on paper is a VOP and failure to report contact with law enforcement is a VOP so in a way you're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't and, frankly you created your own problems by exercising lousy judgment.
If you report the contact then you admit the VOP (unless you are coy and simply tell your PO that you got a ticket and omit the "where" of it... but a lie of omission is still a lie and so I do not recommend omitting) and if you don't admit the contact but your PO finds out then you get a double VOP.
I suggest that you report honestly to your PO, that you hire a local traffic lawyer to handle the citation and I also suggest that you take your probation more seriously, (unless of course you like jail... in which case carry on).
You might consider reading my AVVO Legal Guide on surviving probation / CC in Florida as it contains a great deal of information on the subject and may prove to be helpful to you. For your convenience a link follows:

Wishing you better judgment, luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo.
