Conditions of Supervision

  1. History of probation
    1. Probation first developed in the United States when John Augustus, a Boston cobbler, persuaded a judge in the Boston Police Court in 1841 to give him custody of a convicted offender, a “drunkard,” for a brief period and then helped the man to appear rehabilitated by the time of sentencing
  2. From the point of view of the PO, do they imagine the ‘frightening and high’ statistics are true? Aren’t they on the ground to where they can see the numbers first hand? If they supervise 100+ people at a time, and over a year they only have to arrest a couple people for new charges, isn’t it intellectually dishonest to think that all people on probation are going to violate imminently?
  3. Difference between parole and probation
    1. In my mind, parole is you are in prison, just not IN prison
    2. Probation is you’re done with your time in, but still under heightened scrutiny because you are to some degree a known problem
  4. Conditions of Supervision – Expectation of liberty is diminished
    1. The 4th Amendment protects unwarranted search and seizure. How is it that you give up this right while under supervision?
  5. Can my PO keep me from doing this while I’m under supervision:
    1. Do what I want LOL
    2. Work where I want
    3. Hang out with whomever I wish?
    4. Travel?
    5. Is my car safe?
    6. Stay out all night?
  6. State imposed conditions
  7. Versus probation impose conditions
  8. What is the discretion of the probation officer to extend or lessen supervision requirements
  9. Special conditions for registrants
  10. Electronic monitoring
  11. Fees
  12. Intimidation – wearing swat type tactile gear, armed (gun or taser)
  13. Supervised versus unsupervised / administrative probation
  14. Probation revocation – why does this happen? Does probation trick you?
  15. Home invasion

      I know all about so probation. I took a plea deal for a sex offense. Regular probation is nothing compared to so probation. I got the list of special so conditions and almost died. I of course was forced to take a poly and was told if I didn’t I would be violated, we’l I took it and was violated anyways for talking to a 10 year old that came into my work. After that I tell anyone consideringredients so probation to just serve it in prison like I did. No major restrictions when you get our
