Florida citizens limits to privacy

Although all citizens are entitled to privacy, there are times when police may engage in searches or seizures of property. The Fourth Amendment of the Constitution says that police may engage in such activity if there is reason to believe that a crime has occurred. Furthermore, police must believe that evidence of the crime will be uncovered during a search.

Florida probation violations

When people receive a probationary sentence in lieu of incarceration in Florida, the sentence will include certain conditions of being on probation to which the probationer must adhere. In the event a person violates the conditions of his or her probation, he or she may be resentenced to incarceration and probation may be revoked.
