Currently on deffered adjudication and I'm curious to address a problem with my supervision. I went through an MTR a year ago and was reinstated due to the judge wanting me to enroll back into school. While I am enrolled, my probation is wanting to extend my probation another year due to money owed to the probation department (fees are from not paying my monthly supervision fees while reporting out of coubty). I've been extended 3 times already and have been on probation since 17 years of age (I'm 26 now). I asked to see the judge because I'm doing what is asked of me from him but they won't allow a court date unless they to MTR me again. Currently have a little over a month left. Wondering if contacting my judge is a good idea. I've completed all other requirements and community service would be waived if I was enrolled into school.
The Judge in your case is a public official, and you have the absolute right to write her/him a letter and explain your situation. Retaining a local attorney, who could approach the Judge without the necessity of a court setting, would help as well.
It is typical to not allow someone to finish probation without completing all the terms if their agreement for community supervisiob. A better approach may be to hire an attorney to talk to them, but then again, maybe that money is better spent paying off the fines and fees owed to the probation department.
