i dropped dirty last year in april and a couple times since. I was just wondering if there is no statute of limitations does that mean he can go back to last year and violate me from then, in that case i would have to serve the rest of my parole from then?
I urge you to examine the following:
1.Illinois parole law 730 ILCS 5/3-3-8 states that if a parolee violates any condition set by the parole board or a condition of parole before his period of parole has either expired or ended, the board can do one of three things. It can choose to continue the existing term of parole, with or without modifying or making more conditions for the parolee. The board can parole or release the parolee to a halfway house, or it can revoke the parole and send the parolee back to prison.
2. If you violate the condition of your parole during the pendency of the parole the officer MUST report the violation,
3.At that time you may have a preliminary hearing with a parole hearing officer who is appointed by the board,
4.Then the hearing officer's duty is to decide whether the parole violator needs to have a revocation hearing. A parole will not be revoked without a written notice sent to your last known address that specifies the violation of parole charges against you,
5.If your parole violation stems from new criminal charges, no preliminary hearing has to be held for the parole to be revoked.

It sounds like your parole officer has been cutting you some slack. However, if chooses to violate you because of continuing violations, they may all be considered.
Please understand that answering this doesnâ€™t create an attorney/client relationship between us, and as hard as I try to answer your question well, it isnâ€™t legal advice. No matter how much information you put into a question, the answers you are going to get are still going to be vague. It is in your interest to contact a lawyer, most of whom will do a free consultation. Even 15 minutes with a lawyer is going to produce a more specific answer to your problem.
Good probation and parole officers have a way of letting things slide... until the probationer or probationee has so many or such severe violations that it's not a question of "if" they are going to incur a consequence, but "how sever" it will be. As long as you are on parole you can be violated for any/every thing since you were released (or since you were last violated). Just because your P.O. is waiting doesn't mean it all goes away. He's probably giving you some latitude to see if you can straighten up or not.
