I got a DUI in a different county from where I reside. I was put on probation over a year ago and my probation was transferred to the county I live. Now I have to report to both counties and I've gone to each one with medical issues that I have been having and each one tells me i have to talk to the other one and i end up talking to no one. I've even been put in jail because of these issues I've had. There are so many problems that I've had i couldnt begin to explain everything. I've been treated so badly I'm considering a law suit even. I am wondering who I can contact to try and get help for these problems that I've been having? I feel these things are completely overwhelming me and it has made me so hopeless and depressed because I cant find help.
It appears possible there is more to this story than has been disclosed, but with jail involved, the assistance of counsel could make a great difference. If you cannot afford a lawyer to represent you, you may for public defender services.
This general information about the law and legal procedure is offered as a public service, and not intended as legal advice in this or any other case.
Misdemeanor probation is supervised by the county government, so you’d likely complain to your county boards of commissioners. The actual probation office likely has someone who oversees its operations and you can complain there also.
It isn’t at all clear why a medical condition, by itself, would cause you problems on probation, or lead to jail time. In Idaho, a person has to agree to be put on probation and if you have a medical condition that is interfering with your ability to comply with probation, like being home-bound and unable to attend class or PO meetings, that can be a problem.
