You must understand both your rights and the restrictions that accompany a pretrial release. If you violate the terms of your release, law enforcement can re-arrest you. In addition, if you are on pretrial release for a domestic violence charge and you violate the terms of your release, it will be considered a whole new criminal offense.

We are available to advise and assist individuals with:
In Florida, pretrial release allows eligible individuals (usually those charged with nonviolent offenses) to be released without posting bond. However, there are strict conditions that the individual must meet. For instance, it may be that he or she will not be allowed to drink alcohol, or cannot legally carry a gun, or will be required to check in once a week with his or her pretrial release officer.
The bottom line is that even though you may have been released from jail on pretrial release, it does not mean you no longer have anything to worry about. You still have numerous responsibilities and legal obligations. It is wise to speak with a skilled lawyer in order to make sure you fully understand the terms of your release, i.e., what you are obligated to do and what you are prohibited from doing.
