Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
While it's speculative on my part, my thought is that the probation officer (PO) is bluffing. The PO is likely trying to force your son to sign the modification papers by telling him that his options are to either sign the papers or get violated. Based on your statements, there does not appear to be a legitimate basis for a violation. As I understand it, he has been making progress on his classes and he has passed his alcohol tests. As to the "beers", they were non-alcoholic and would, therefore, not likely be considered a violation. In short, my opinion is that she cannot "do this" to your son.

Even if she does this doesnt she have to take him to court in the town in which he lives for a misdemeanor violation?
If his probation is violated, it would be prosecuted in the same courthouse that handled the original offense.
