1. 2 prior DUI's and a felony 3 in Colorado.
2. May 2013
Hello,My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am an experienced criminal lawyer.If the offense for which you are on probation was a Colorado case, then Colorado is in charge of that case even if your supervision is currently in New Jersey. If your NJ probation officer lodges a violation, your hearing will be before the judge in Colorado. That is how our system works. That is, you must go back before the sentencing court.So yes, if you are violated because of these new offenses, you can expect to be incarcerated on the VOP and be extradited to Colorado.I am very sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
For Traffic tickets??
Does double jeopardy imply to this?? New Jersey has no problem with the tickets.
