I was just charged with 2 misdemeanor charges due to my dog. 1 dog at large and 2. Animal attacking person. It was a really messed up situation. I had requested an officer to come to my home because of an abandoned car. When he got here I went to go out and my pit bolted out in front of me. He immediately started kicking her so she nipped at him a couple of times. Definitely not an attack. He cited me for 1. Animal at large, 2. Animal attacking person. I’m currently on parole for a DUI. I experiate in October. Been out for 3.5 years, never had any problems, no violations, fines and fees up to date.
It really depends on the conditions of your parole or probation. Generally, both require no violations of the law. It would be worth your while to dispute the charges although even if you were found "not guilty" the Board could still revoke your parole/probation.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Utah and Idaho, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in the states where I’m licensed, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Utah or Idaho, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
The result in this case depends on a few factors.
1. The conditions of your parole.
2. Your parole officer and your past behavior on parole.
3. The nature of the alleged parole violations.
You mention that you haven't had any issues on parole, and that you think that these new charges are not charged correctly. A good attorney can help you navigate the requirements and standards of the parole system and whether you can challenge these charges as a basis of a parole revocation.
