My question involves criminal law for the state of: New York
My son is in his 3rd year of a 6 year probation for a misdemeanor sex crime in New York. One of the conditions of his probation is that he not use social media or internet. He has done really well on probation, no issues and then the other day he was found to have Snap Chat on his phone. His PO stated that there are 3 violations caused by this; downloading the app, using his phone as a computer and accessing the internet to do so. He met with his PO and was told he would have to come back in a few days. He accepted responsibility and made no excuses.
What are the possible outcomes of this issue? How does he earn the trust of his PO again? He never did jail time as he accepted a plea of probation and the SORA only....We are trying to get ahead of this so we are not blindsided by the outcome.
Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you........
