I am a first time offender sentenced to 3 years probation in Orange County, CA. If for any reason my PO denies my request for out of state travel can I go to the judge to request it? If so, how do I go about this?
My PO has always approved my requests but just want a back-up. Last time they denied it and then approved after I submitted info relating to my hotel/air reservations. It seems dumb really to even have to submit a travel permit. They don't come out my house anymore or call at random. I simply do write-ins once a month. Wouldn't even know I'm gone. But, I don't want to risk it of course.
Is there a way to remove that provision from my probation? Also, what paperwork must I file to end my probation early? If I hire a lawyer, is there a general flat fee to take care of this? I'm 2 years into the 3 year probation period. No violations, pay my dues on time etc. . .
Thanks for any info.
