My son's probation officer put him on house arrest following a DUI while waiting for court. How long can she keep him on it?
My son's probation officer put him on house arrest following a DUI in September of 2014, while waiting for court. He was fitted with an alcohol monitor, which she told him was also a GPS unit. That was a lie, the company that makes them doesn't make a dual unit. After serving 21 days in jail, she informed him that he is still on house arrest.. It is now April and she still has him on house arrest. He has completed the court required alcohol treatment program and he still has the alcohol monitor as well. I've stayed out of this as much as possible, but this PO, I feel is on a power trip. The court NEVER ordered him to be on house arrest. Now she's trying to get him to go to church and attend AA meeting. And to socialize more by calling her to get permission to go places.
Probation officers have fairly broad discretion, and the terms of probation are generally left even broader. You're...
I got an underage at the beginning of the month and my court date is coming soon, i just wanted to know what will the judge ask.
This is my first underage, and the first time i have EVER been in trouble. I'm scared to go to court and i just want to know what he will ask me, when I'm there. I was not holding any alcohol i was just running around my house being obnoxious when the cops got there. Do you think the judge will ask me where i got the alcohol from?

Could I go to jail for not being able to afford my daily breathalyzer for probation?
I was involved in a DUI a year or so back. Recently I was sentenced to one additional year of probation, during which I would have to take a daily home breathalyzer. I am a single dad with 2 children, bills, and rent. I only make a little over minimum wage, and am being asked to pay $360 every month for this test. That is in addition to my rent, the bills, caring for my children, court, lawyers, and several other tests the court require me to take. It has become extremely hard to pay for this simply because I do not have the money.. So my question is, could I go to jail because I can not pay for my daily test? Is there an alternative that they are not informing me about? Thank you.
Any time you have a court ordered stipulation of your probation, you are required to comply. If you fail to comply,...
