I was put on probation through a plea agreement. My charges were misdemeanor battery and plea was 1 year probation and anger management classes. When I got out of jail I had notice on door I had to move because landlord didn't want anyone facing criminal charges and also got letter in mail for time to meet PO same time as my next court date so I called her and left her a voicemail to let her know I can't meet due to having court date at same time and ... on top of that I lost my job for being in jail for 12 days so I moved to friends house and due to being unemployed my car got taken and cell phone got shut off during that time my phone was shut off my PO called and said I had to meet her that day and take drug test but I never got it bc my phone was shut off ... So I called her 5 days later letting her know the situation going on and told her I moved and gave her new address and told her to please contact me back 3 days after I left her that voicemail I had family friend contact me saying I had a warrant for probation violation? What am I facing? How am I violated do to the situation I'm in? I'm not ordered for drug tests by judge why would she randomly call the day of?
First, being subjected to random drug testing is a standard rule of probation. Unless otherwise specifically addressed in your plea agreement, it doesn't matter that your conviction is for a non-drug offense. As far as the consequences of the probation violation, it largely depends on the circumstances, your probation officer and your judge. From county to county the typical outcome can vary. You seem to at least have some legitimate things that could factor in your favor. However, when one does not report to probation as directed, it can be the basis for revocation.
