My son was incarcerated in prison for about 2 yrs. When he was released he was on probation
for 2 more years. He "violated some curfew rules and was sent backto prison. This time when he is release he will have a parole
officer. I do not understand the difference? Can someone explain this to us?
JA: Since parole regulations vary, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Yes, this is in Arizona And is futher complicated to us because the judge, after he was charged with probation violation, the judge gave him the choice of staying out of prison and being put on "intense probation" or going back to prison for a period of time and upon release he would be "done" so to speak. Now he is being released with a high status for good behavior but will still be on parole for a period of time. The reason he chose to go back to prison is because the probation before was so strict he did not feel confident that he would be successful with "intense probatio" so he finished "his debt to society", so why will he be on parole upon release which is in a week ? We thought that he chose to finish his sentence in prison so he would be toally free when released. We don't understand?
JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.
Customer: I did not get an answer?
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Nothing new that I know about...
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just to understand why he will be on parole?
