Louisville Probation Revocation Attorney
Commonwealth of Kentucky Probation and Parole

Arrested for probation revocation is usually the last goal of anyone on probation.  a probation officer when sending a Special Supervision Report to the Commonwealth Attorney.  The Commonwealth Motions for Probation Revocation and attaches the Special Report to the motion.  Often, depending on the type of violation, a defendant is arrested.  If this happens you will be in front of your sentencing judge the next morning.  Obviously, you and anyone else would want to get out.  But, you want to get out for the main reason to improve yoru track record and go  back for probation revocation in a better position than you were at arrest.  You are often arrested when the probation officer sends in a special report and asks that a bond can be set.  A probation officer informs interested parties about a defendant by preparing and sending out "special supervision reports."  If your probation officer asks for a motion to revoke your probation you are often arrested and you can expect to be in front of your sentencing judge the next morning   

Probation and Parole officers and getting to know the Officers and their offices is integral in representing your clients and doing criminal defense work. If the client doesn't work this system like they should with respect and relationship building they will have a horrible time with their probation and parole officer creating a risk of noncompliance. Felony Probation, Felony Parole, Misdemeanor Probation and MIP.  MIP is explained later.  

Probation officers are not only assigned to those with felony convictions or diversion pleas, but also misdemeanor guilty or plea agreements. The Misdemeanor Supervision is called MIP, or Misdemeanor Intensive Probation. It is like normal probation with a tan. Seriously, Misdemeanor Intensive Probation is really just a heightened level of probation recognizing that domestic violence perpetrator's decision making can often be fueled by emotion. When your thought process is controlled by emotion it can create a dangerous environment. Often in a domestic situation where the relationship was breaking up and it resulted in violence then one side was not in agreement and feels out of control. When the scorned party doesn't understand, or they can only remember the good times and none of the bad, they can become dangerously blinded by emotion and grief. This becomes the explosive situation that often hit headlines.    

Role of Probation and Parole

Kentucky Probation and Parole Officers are assigned to work with defendants and their families to facilitate the rehabilitation of the offender. Their duties may include arranging for mental health services, jobs or housing, monitoring their behavior and other tasks like curfew checks and drug testing.
Difference between Probation and Parole: They are not the same.  
Probation and parole officers typically share the same duties with one exception. A parole officer supervises offenders who have been released from prison after serving part of their sentence. A probation officer supervises those who are sentenced to serve probation instead of being incarcerated.
Probation and Parole is something everyone should be knowledgeable about. The officers at Probation and Parole are not your enemies unless you want them to be. I know you say, McLeod, but they are babysitting me? Well, not by choice. The Legislature introduced and passed the bill that created "supervised probation" and the officers to occupy the offices.
Do's and Dont's:
Do: Tell your officer you will be positive if he asks.  
Don't: If the officer is going to drop you, tell him you can't go or you have "frightened bladder syndrome." Even if THEY believe you the judge will not.  
Do: Show up on time.
Don't: Show up wearing a shirt that says, "I Farted" or the equivalent.  
Do: Everything and more for 1 year and get placed on inactive supervision.
Don't: Pick up new charges, even if you weren't trying to get arrested.
