i was setup in a sting operation and entraped..i answered an ad on craigslist for 36 years old mother and curious daughter not expecting it to be real. when she replied we hit it off and she said to come over and hang out, there was no talked about this so called daughter i was just interested in the mother..well as i was almost to her place they slipped an email in saying that her daughter was 13 and curious. i never accknowledged the email with texting, talking and gps running on my phone..when i was getting close to her place i asked her what she was looking to do and she replied i thought i told you i wanted my daughter involved. my reply to that was:ehhhh i dont know about that: still never knowing or really even careing about the daughter.so when i rang doorbell they busted me..said i made substancual step by showing up..it is all in the evidence and its not fair how they did that to me..


i was charged with att agg statuatory rape..and att criminal exposure to hiv..i took a plea for 2.5 years probation and 10 year sex registry..but it turned out when i went to enroll in probation that the exposure charge was acually a violent offence and life time registry..i was told by the da, lawyer and judge that it wasnt. so i have a motion to pull my plea on it..i just cant at the moment because i will not have a pd represent me again..i am innocent of these charges as well the only reason i took the plea is because i was in jail for 6 months before i neven got to arraingment and was about to lose my house. and blount county, tn is very corrupt..very.... i was misinformed...


 


i think i have almost 2 years left..


 


i am on ssi but still work..


 


yes i comply with probation, my po and i get along great but she cannot do anything for me she said..


 

Expert:  Samuel II replied 10 months ago.

Good morning

Thank you for that information

I suggest that your PO has a legal obligation to report any and all arrests since you are on probation.

However, your PO may help you and come to your rescue by testifying to the court that you are otherwise in compliance and that your probation should not be terminated until and if there is a conviction on these new charges

I suggest you will want to talk to you PO and see if they are willing to do that for you.

If you are found guilty of the new charges, of course, then the court can terminate your current probation and impose the remainder of that sentence - which generally would run consecutive with any new sentence you might get.



I hope that this information is helpful. If you need further information, please just send me a reply asking for clarification. After that, I hope you will enter a positive rating so that I will be credited for assisting you. Thanks again for using this service. Your business is appreciated

Relist: Answer quality.
i already stated she had said she couldnt do anything..
Expert:  Samuel II replied 10 months ago.
Hello

Well, she can. I suggest that it is the testimony of your PO that will be the only thing that will keep you from being terminated at this point.

Maybe she meant she can't do anything as to having to report it.

Because she can testify on your behalf at the Probation termination hearing.

i am very displeased with your answer i was expecting something more. i apologize if ive wasted your time. i already know about her help limits... i feel i was tricked into paying when i was not even aware by giving you a smiley face i was being charged..i want refund as promised and very sorry for this...thank you


 

Expert:  Samuel II replied 10 months ago.

Hello

I apologize if you feel you were "tricked"

Please tell me what information you want.

The process is cut and dry and it is up to you PO to come to you defense showing that you have a job, you are otherwise in compliance and make the court understand that you deserve to continue on probation until there is a conviction of the new charge

If you want a refund please use the CONTACT US button below and a refund will be issued

But understand that according to our Terms of Service we can only provide information on what you ask
