  1. I think convictions is the key... read your terms and conditons of probation form

  2. Talk to your probation officer.
    I would think that she is not convicted, so she has no record.

    This is not legal advice. If order to give you legal advice i would need to see the Tickets and talk to the court first. Good luck:)


  3. I agree the AVVO posters. It is important to review the terms of probation, speak with the probation department, and ask your prior attorney or public defender.


  4. I think that unless she has other convictions for felonies this would be o.k. unless she becomes convicted. You might want to discuss this with your probation officer carefully.

  5. The answer is NO. she cannot get violated under this scenario even if she were actually a sentenced individual. Good Luck.
