My friend has been on ankle monitor for 10 months now his court date is coming . Can the judge make ankle monitor as part of probation requirement on plea . Her crime of was violation of top . Her friend says not possible as this monitoring can only be used for pretrial .
Her friend is absolutely wrong. Electronic monitoring can absolutely be a condition of probation. I would be more concerned with having a stalking conviction on my record than having to wear an ankle monitor though. I hope your friend has an aggressive attorney working to try and keep a conviction from getting on their record.

She has been getting some "street law" advice from a "street lawyer" and - as usual - it is wrong. GPS monitoring can be a condition of probation. The systems are increasingly sophisticated, and can trigger if a person leaves a certain area (distance from home, county, state) or enters another area.
I had many such cases. Give me a call.
