Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Based upon what you shared, it would appear that you have legal defenses, to the VOP. I say this because in order to be in violation, there would need to be intentional, willful and wanton conduct, to show you intended to violate. In this case, you missing the classes was a direct result of being hospitalized. It was something out of your control and if you have documentation to show you were in the hospital and can show it was impossible for you to appear as a result of your condition, it would be very hard for the Judge to find a violation. Moreover, the program should allow you to return, based upon this. Moreover, unless she told YOU and imposed as a condition the issue regarding the treatment class, it can not be a surprise and the program should have their own policies which they impose. There is no reason for her to tell them to kick you out and not share anything with you and place you on notice of this possible violation. With this all being said, you can contest the VOP and go to a final hearing and present your evidence to show you were in the hospital and your failure to attend was not intentional and that there was nothing ever told you you regarding classes and being kicked out.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
