My boyfriend is currently incarcerated awaiting a revocation hearing for minor rules violations. His parole officer has never came to see him since he went to jail over 2 months ago, and even sent another officer to take his statement as a courtesy because she was too busy. Now she is trying to send him back to prison for 3.5 years. My boyfriend had a visit from an unknown party in jail and they told him that his parole officer is now under investigation and is in trouble as well as a few others possibly. What could this mean? What will happen if she is suspended or fired due to her failures as a parole officer? Could they reverse my boyfriends revocation if his parole officer is found to have supervised him poorly or forced fake allegations for revocation?
I think that any information that casts doubt on the honesty or veracity of the probation agent can be helpful. Remember, to be found in violation a hearing can be requested and at the hearing you have a right of confrontation where inquiry can be made into the character of the agent and the likelihood that he simply did not do his job in a professional manner.
In a nutshell, this issue with the agent is NOT a bad thing !
