probation violation
Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 month ago.

Yes, but what did you do that is a violation?

Also, has the probation officer filed a Motion to Revoke yet?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
i never checked in its my first violation and yes
Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 month ago.

If a Motion to Revoke has been filed then the only thing you can do at this point is to hire al lawyer or get one appointed.

How long have you been on probation and how many times did you miss reporting?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
ive been on probation for six months. i reported one time right when i got out of jail
Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 month ago.

So did you miss reporting five times? Were you supposed to report once a month or more than that?

Also, why didn't you report?
