    Default Community Service Non-Compliance

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: New York

    I'm sorry, I'm not really sure if this goes in this forum, but I didn't really know where to put it. I recently received an ACD for a petit larceny case, and was sentenced to 30 hours community service. The judge gave me the number of an office to call to set up the community service, and I was instructed to call them within 5 days. I called them on the 4th day, and asked if I could defer doing the community service until august (when I go back to school), and they said this was fine and told me to call them when I got back to school. Now, two days ago, I received a letter informing me that I had not contacted them and they were sending the matter back to the court. Is this going to reopen my trial? Can I be given a new sentence for this? The court told me I had till Sept 12 to fulfill the community service itself. I was so relieved to get this over with, and now it comes back to bite me. If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated.

    Call them this morning and see what happened. This could be a clerical error.

    That's really what I'm hoping. I called them this morning, and they told me the woman I need to speak to was in a meeting and that she would contact me. Hopefully it all gets straightened out (and it also teaches me a lesson about recording important phone calls).
