  1. Electronic monitoring can be a condition of probation.

    Any response given is not to be taken as legal advice or to create an attorney client relationship.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
