What is a supplement motion to revoke probation?

Highland Heights, KY |

Friend received a paper that said supplement of motion to revoke probation, and another cell mate had the same thing written, but also stated motion to revoke probation. What does it mean by supplement of motion to revoke probation? Has to do with violation of probation but he never caught any new charges neither did he come back with any dirty drug tests at all. He has had 3 violations of probation, one that had actually put him into a rehab facility and 2 were the rehab facility dismissing him because of manipulation they said.

A motion to revoke is a notice of the intention of the Commonwealth to revoke a probated sentence due to a violation of the terms of probation. A supplemental motion to revoke is a notice of additional grounds upon which the prosecutor will rely upon in support of the original motion and the original grounds stated therein. The defendant needs a criminal defense attorney ASAP to defend the motions.
