  1. The parolee is entitled to a hearing first, so really, the violation needs to be determined as true first.


  2. That is to be determined during the court hearing.

    Behar Intl. Counsel 619.234.5962 Kindly be advised that the answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case.

  3. The PO doesn't determine his sentence; that's up to the judge. He needs to get a good criminal defense lawyer to present his case and possible limit the punishment.
