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

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

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
i never checked in its my first violation and yes
Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 7 months 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 7 months ago.
ive been on probation for six months. i reported one time right when i got out of jail

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?
