Well I spent over an hour typing up this detailed explanation of my question, but it's not here and I haven't the energy to go through all that again. Basically my boyfriend's probation officer is on this big power trip and is intent on tripping him up somehow, revoking his probation, and sending him to jail. She has repeatedly acted in an unprofessional manner...even went as far as to talk about another case and the fact that she'd issued a warrant for the guy's arrest. Her newest thing is she thinks he needs drug and alcohol counseling even though he has passed every weekly UA given to him. She believes he is some sort of Hudini and magically passes them. She is constantly accusing him of buying drugs with his paycheck...the paycheck he doesn't get because he's paying for UA's, classes, and gas to and from all these things and to work. Thankfully he's got a free place to live or he'd be a goner. She told him last week that she wanted somebody to manage his money for him even though he's almost 30 years old because she wants to know where every dime is going...more likely because she wants to know how much room she has to jack up his fines. He's already struggling as it is. She also told him last week that she is supposed to come and visit his job and house once a month and check randomly to make sure he's making curfew...but that it's too much trouble for her to do that so she's going to ask the judge to put an ankle bracelet on him at 11 bucks a day! She knows he can't afford it and she doesn't care...then she can revoke his probation and send him to jail. How can she take his freedom away because she's lazy?! He has been more than compliant with everything she's asked of him. She seems out for blood. If she actually does go to a judge with this, does he have the right to be present or does she even have to notify him that she's doing it? If she gets the order, can my boyfriend get an attorney and appeal it somehow? This will be the last straw if she succeeds. She will have finally jacked up his fines so high that he can't afford them and she'll revoke him. He's beginning to feel hopeless about the situation. I keep trying to encourage him and tell him that it will all work out, but I can't even convince myself that it will be alright.
