My probation is to end on April 12th. I had one violation during my probation and was placed on a CAM monitor for 6 months. I went and had my CAM monitor removed last week and immediately went to my last probation visit. My PO checked and confirmed I had met all my terms and he was going to send my paperwork to the judge the following day. We shake hands and he wished me luck and told me to stay out of trouble, so...... am I done??
You're not finished until the judge signs the final order.
My answers are not legal advice, and I am not your attorney unless I agree to accept your case and you sign a contract. Avvo is only a general question forum, so you should seek a consultation about your specific legal needs. Please forgi want typographical errors. I'm often replying via via my cellular phone. .
Remember it is not April 12 yet. Wait until you can confirm on court records that all is complete.
Best of luck to you
You are not "done" until either the Court formally terminates your probation on the record in open court or B) the natural end date comes and goes such that the court is divested of jurisdiction over you (note that in this later instance probation will only naturally expire if you do NOT have a pending - not a prior but a pending - VOP).
Wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
The judge does not neeed to sign any order terminating your probation if the time period expires and you have no outstanding probation violation. The court loses all jurisdiction over you on April 12.
Every case and situation is different and my answers will vary greatly depending on the specific facts of each one. My answers shouldn't be considered complete answers to each question and an answer doesn't establish an attorney/client relationship. Always seek the advice of your own attorney.
