Customer Question
I'm on felony probation...

I'm on felony probation and have been on full disability for the past 7 years and the judge told me to get a job or go to jail.

Lawyer's Assistant: What were you convicted of exactly? Have all your appeals been exhausted?

In the state of Missouri August 2016 I was sentenced to 5 years probation I reported directly to probation officer after court she asked me where I worked I said I am full-time disability so I didn't work the first six seven months and my probation officer was fine with that then the judge in Clinton County Missouri only him called everyone in his County who was on probation to go in front of him when it came to me he asked me where I was working I told him I was going through a divorce and moved in with my mom and your honor I am on full-time disability he got mad and said we both know you put yourself on at find a job in 30 days or you will go to jail

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a MO lawyer about this yet?

I have spoken with three different attorneys and they said the judge can do whatever he would like in his courtroom but they all thought it was disgusting and could not believe how he ruled stating that I had to have a job even though I am on full-time disability or I go to jail

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No that's it. He told me I would do everyday of the 5-year probation and I couldn't qualify for the 30 30 program for every month you do good you get 30 days taken off your sentence I've been in trouble once prior for a DUI like 10-12 years earlier then my felony charged with unlawful use of weapon

Did your attorney present all the evidence / documents showing that you were determined to be 100% permanently disabled by the Social Security Administration to the judge?
