My probation officer doesn't ever return my calls. I missed an appointment in October, because my dog was hit by a car and I was at the vets trying to save her. (success!) I immediately called her, apologized, explained and it took 4 weeks to get a call back after 7-8 messages. She just did a home visit end of January, told me to call beginning of Feb to set another appt. I called, left her a message, and no response. So today, I get a message saying I missed our last appt (which was never scheduled!!) And I have to come in on Wed. She KNOWS my daughter has surgery wed. I have just left her a message but I know how this goes. Also, for some reason, she only drug tests me on the visits I have my kids with me. Never any other time. Breath test too, and Im allowed alcohol not that I drink.Thanks :) Its just frustrating, since I am a single mom, in college, and this was a family related issue, which I didn't do. The family member even stated during the presentence investigation that he didn't want to see me go to jail or have any real punishment. He was more trying to save his own skin, and I didn't have anymore money or strength to fight, so i accepted the Plea. Now - I wish I hadn't. I appreciate the advice!! One last thanks!! She was very nice today, and after only 6 months of 3 years is talking early release.....WOHOOOO!
