On my criminal background I also have prior theft charges but have been convicted of already. Do you think probation officer will allow me to get into a rehab.
The Probation Options Management Act or POM allows a superior court judge to give the Department of Community Supervision and your probation officer authority to modify the terms of your probation without returning you to court. That authority is limited to certain sanctions, usually up to a capped period in a probation detention center, but that can vary depending on the superior court's order. The degree of authority your probation officer has would depend on the order the judge in your case entered. Whether your probation officer could or would accept your entry to rehab in lieu of some other sanction would depend on the court's order, the facts of your case, and who your probation officer is. You should consult with a lawyer about what your options are and the likelihood of resolving the probation matter how you'd like to.
