im facing a federal probation violation and i need legal advice ASAP! my PO wants me to come in tomorrow and sign a paper for halfway house or otherwise go to see the judge for a hearing. the violation is for a dui that happened a year ago and has since been resolved as well as a postive drug test. problem is, halfway house will destroy my career and some business relationships ive worked several years to build. i should mention my PO does not care for me much but is halfway house the best to hope for at this point?? one last thing, i require advice before 9:00am est, 5/1/2013 or its of no use. thanks
i guess what i need to know are there mitigating factor i can use at the hearing that could get me something less than the sanction my PO is offering? if so, i would like to go into slight more detail and perhaps you can give me sound advice as to whether my chances improve at all? Also, i should note that im technically on supervised release and not probation; i served my entire time in prison, no parole or back time. Second, i have repeatedly asked for help in obtaining a psycologist or treatment as i cannot afford one on my own without insurance.
