I'm on probation for DV with a previous girl. A little back ground we were stung out on meth and the entire relationship was abusive both ways, both physically and emotionally. Since I have completed a treatment program and been clean for two years. My question is can my probation officer contact my significant other and disclose why I'm on probation, i.e. the charge for which I plead guilty and am on probation for? My significant other know my history as an addict and in and out of jail for years but she doesn't know any specifics.
In theory, yes, but why would your probation officer do that? What are you really concerned about?
