Is it reasonable to ask the judge to give her a new probation officer because we feel that no matter what my girlfriend does, that her probation officer is going to continue to find ways to put her in jail. Basically, I told the attorney I am hiring to ask for a new probation officer before the first hearing, but he didn't. I told him that I would not retain him unless he told the judge that we believe that her P.O. cannot be impartial or fair. And we believe that she needs t be removed from the case. Is that unreasonable or unrealistic ?
She hasn't started DRC . I'm saying that is her new sentence really has not started yet because she has not been released from jail . My girlfriend was only on regular probation before she was violated . So she has never been in DRC. They have accepted her , but her P.O is appealing the decision. And you are saying that you don't expect the judge to reconsider, and keep my girlfriend in jail ?
