What is Supervised Release (SPR) in Sarasota, FL?

If a defendant is arrested and brought before a judge for first appearance in Sarasota County, the judge may order that the defendant be placed on supervised release (SPR). The defendant will then be interviewed by someone from Pretrial Services and assigned an SPR Officer.

If the defendant is released from jail (the defendant bonds out or is released ROR, with no bond needed) the defendant will have to maintain contact with the SPR Officer. The defendant will also have to abide by all conditions of supervised release that the judge may have ordered at first appearance. Common conditions include no drinking alcohol, no drugs, random urinalysis, no return to the property, and/or no contact with the victim.

If someone violates Supervised Release it is very likely that there will be a warrant issued for their arrest. If this has happened to you, or you are afraid that it may happen, be sure to contact a criminal defense attorney right away to discuss your options. There are oftentimes things that can be done to help you.
