They whopped the charges. I am wondering what's going to happen to me. Is my probation officer going to find out and violate me?
Your probation officer will probably find out because the police usually call them. The probation officer may very well ask the district attorney to file a motion to revoke. The prosecutor would have to prove that you violated the law to the judge in order for the judge to revoke the probation. You should contact your attorney immediately.
Law Office of Patrick Lewis, www.TheKansasDefender.com (913) 558-3961, This answer is intended to provide general information about the justice system. It does not provide legal advice nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. It does not provide the basis for making decisions about a course of action. Legal advice requires more communication and information than is possible in this format. Many important considerations and factors need to be investigated and discussed before an attorney could give legal advice about this issue. Before making any decisions about a course of action readers are strongly encouraged to contact a lawyer and secure an attorney-client relationship. Readers must also understand that this format does not provide for confidential communication.
Just because charges may have been dropped, it doesn't mean that you won't be found in violation of your probation. You should get back into some type of treatment program and show that you are trying to get back into compliance with the conditions of probation.
If they're going to find out.... can't say, but they will likely violate you. Call and attorney asap.
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.What determines Avvo Rating?Experience & background
