In February 2014 i plead guilty to manufacturing methamphetamine less than 15 grams, and possession of a controlled substance. I was sentenced to 48 months probation on the first felony and 30 months probation on the second felony and 144 days total periodic imprisonment instanter. Both sentences of probation to be run concurrently. In December of 2016 the states attorney filed a Petition To Revoke both probations. My awesome appointed attorney filed a motion to dismiss PTR based on the state waiting until after one of the terms of probation had expired to file the PTR. In March 2017 a hearing was held in front of a Judge on the motion to dismiss. At that time the States Attorney confessed the motion to dismiss PTR on the 48 month probation term and agreed I was discharged from probation in that 1 probation term. The States Attorney specifically wrote the order out stating the case number that was to be discharged and The Judge signed off on the order. However i still have a hearing in April 2017 on a PTR for the lesser term of probation meaning the 30 month term. This is the case that shouldve been discharged but im not complaining. Should i be worried about a reversal somehow?
Possibly. You obviously have an awesome appointed attorney, so he should advise you regarding this matter.
You are asking a question which would require analysis of the Language of the PTR's, the Sentencing Orders, the dismissal order on the PTR, the motion to dismiss the PTR and the progress sheets in the court file. We have none of those things. You are quite right the ACPDO provides excellent service. Start there. One possibility is you tried to qualify for Drug Court. That time doesn't count. Another possibility is you weren't living in your registered address for a time. Those are guesses. The SAO has recently reorganized so it could also be this is a straight-up mistake.
I wish you well.
