Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced criminal lawyer.
Unfortunately, as a probationer, you waived almost all of your rights in order to remain out of jail. You agreed to be bound by the requirements set by your probation officer, and you know that failing to perform those requirements can get you violated and to lose your liberty.
Probation is not easy. You're not in jail, but you're not really at liberty either. Probation can impose what restrictions it feels are appropriate upon you and require you to comply with them. What it can't do is impose arbitrary requirements on you, simply because they have the power.
One right you have is the right to a hearing. The judge who sentenced you has the power to overrule probation. If your lawyer prepared a formal motion to modify and it's been denied, that, unfortunately, would likely mean that at this time, the judge is siding with probation. But you can talk to the lawyer who represented you on your case and see if he can find a different route for you to get some relief from your financial burden.
