Thank you for the information. So you have been violated and you have a hearing pending? Did you provide the information as required?
Thank you for that information. So, what is it you want to do exactly? It appears you have already come out on top in this matter. No violation is pending. So what is the issue?
Well, I don't know what the statute says, you can provide that section for me. Because as far as I know and with my experience, the agents are not "baby sitters" and It is always up to the offender to know their responsibilities.
I don't think you have any basis or merit for any type of action against your agent. Sorry
Thank you for the information. I have never seen this
(c) A probation officer or parole agent who supervises anindividual who is required to register as a sex offender pursuant toSection 290 shall inform that individual of his or her duties underthis section not fewer than six days prior to the date on which proofof registration or proof of any change or update to registrationinformation is to be provided to the probation officer or paroleagent.
and it is very interesting. Well, since you were not reminded as required by law, then you should go to his supervisor and tell that you feel you should not be violated and that the 5 days should be rescinded. However, if you do that, you may not get to travel because the PO needs to give that permission. And, I am not sure that would happen if you complain this time. They do hold all the power. So you need to weigh that.
Well, that's the thing. If they are not adhering to the provision then you would need to have other probationers who have been violated due to them not "reminding" them. And you would need an attorney who would be willing to do all that work for you.
Perhaps, you could discuss it with the ACLU and see if they feel there is enough there for them to exert energy towards it. I fully understand your concerns and frustration. But it takes a lot to fight the establishment and you don't want to risk provoking them on your situation.
So, when you probation is over consider contacting the ACLU in your area and see what they have to offer. I wish I had more.
