The thing with probation and probation officers is that they can make recommendations to the court, but it is ultimately up to the court to decide. What happens in these instances is that many times a probation officer will tell the violator what they believe should be done, but when the probation officer discusses the matter with their supervisor or the prosecutor, the supervisor or prosecutor does not like the recommendation, so the probation officer must change it, this happens frequently and there is nothing prohibiting it, so they can change it. Once the matter is heard in open court, and the judge concurs, it is technically added to the probation order because it was done on the record. Therefore, if you do not comply with the drug court, you could be held in violation of probation.
