My question involves criminal law for the state of: Georgia
Hello i was released from prison few months ago and i have 5 years on probation with special conditions(to be employed or be in school fulltime).Now i have severed my time and learned my lesson.As I have entered society a law abiding citizen now although I did suffer mental scars from being prison( i now see a pyschologistic)due to the horrible stuff I seen in prison(i have nightmares just thinking about it).But anyways to go on I live in a good area with good family(my cousin is a doctor)so i also began working for a company as a marketing director.
Problem is the probation when asked if i was employed i told yes and gave them the information were I work.Guess what happened?I got FIRED although my employee didnt tell me the exact reason,i knew was because the probation officer checked to verify my employment.I know it is their job but come on folks to call a work place and tell them one of your employees is a probationer,they will cleary fire you espically in a red penal state like Georgia.And the other problem is i have classes(MRT) and it is exspensive and cost me gas money/transportation.I spend nearly $100 on transportation last week and i also pay rent so my money is tight even though i live in a good area my family still wants me to pay for bills and help the kids.This probation thing is kinda messing me up and when they did visit my house(good neighborhood)the neighbors look at me differently now they seen a probation officer visit my area.I dont do no drugs and obey the law as i am a changed man even though my crime was soo petty and im really innocent.
Is their a way i can write a letter to the judge to let the restrictions be easier?I mean come on now i work for a good company and if every time my po check on the companies i now have to result into those cheap 9 to 5 jobs like ware house or mcdonalds?This probation thing isnt helping,i have moved on with my life is their some type of way of me getting of probation?Or can i take my case back to court because when i did plea the plea NEVER supported the factualy basis to what I pleaded to.I also take mrt classes mondays,wednesdays every week for the next month which means i have to take some time off work and the employees dont like that(the last company's manager yelled me wondering why im not here on thosedays).And i have travel 1 hour to the other side of the city for a stupid 2 hour class which is money as transportation is an issue.I have no car and the train/bus isnt cheap remeber i pay rent,grocery,probation fees,help the kids,etc.
My family have gaven me rides several times on them to the point i am a burden(imagine every week my cousin drives me for 30 mins and yet she has work).Why dont these probation people understand that we ex offenders are humans?Yes i was young and stupid back in the days to commit a crime,but im grown and i want to make it in life but probation espically in Georgia is backwards and stressful.I wish my life could get better..
