Was on prescribed antidepressant Zoloft that made me hallucinate, not sleep for 2 weeks, loss of contact with reality, etc. Was banging on someones door cops came i lifted my shirt to show i was unarmed and got indecent exposure. Had proof for judge that i was in a rehabilitation hospital for 10 days following this arrest and proof from a doctor that my episode was drug induced. Not currently on any medication and stable/working full time. No previous criminal history. Public defender said it was best to plead guilty.. Got unsupervised probation 11 mths. Public defender said just worry about staying out of trouble and send the screening which i did. But papers say i should have been sending monthly proof of counceling compliance and i havent. Havent had transportation for majority of probation time due to a car accident and finacially struggling. When the 11 months is done will I have further court dates and end up with jail time? Already paid $425 restitution before unsupervised probation started. I have been attending counceling the past few weeks since i have a car now..but unsupervised probation started 7 months ago..
Whether you can be sent to jail for failing to report your counselling will depend on the terms of your plea agreement, the position of the prosecutor, and the judge's interpretation of the plea agreement. However, provided you do have proof that you've been doing your counselling you can submit it to the court now with an explanation of why you were late in sending it in. You should probably contact the public defender to find out if you might be in trouble with the court.
