    Answered . Probation is not a right it is a privlege. What does your Lawyer have to say about it? He or she would know far better than anyone on this site because that Lawyer is right there with the Judge and Probation.

    That is my personal and professional opinion, Thank you, William L. Summers

    Answered . Yes. One condition of probation is often to not hang out with other felons or other people on probation. I suggest you comply with probation 110% and maybe the probation will loosen the ropes a little bit.

    Answered . I agree. You do EXACTLY what the probation department tells you to do.. They say jump, you say how high. (unless they cross a very clear line such as you having to work for the PO personally or something like that). Be on your best behavior, as that PO is the ONLY thing keeping you from going to jail if you do not comply with there wishes. Good luck.

    The above information is not, nor intend to be, legal advice. You SHOULD consult an attorney for specific advice... more

    Answered . I agree with the other Attorneys who have answered, but as a past probation officer, as long as you are following the rules of probation you will avoid problems. Your probation officer may allow contact on holidays so long as your in compliance.
