Reply To: NARSOL to monitor infringements of rights this Halloween

Last year my son had moved to a rural county due to a new job. His probation supervision was still required in the urban setting where his offense had been prosecuted. That urban setting required all individuals under supervision to report to the probation office for three hours during Trick or Treating peak hours. Although my son was now living with me and my rural home had never had any children Trick or Treating in the 20+ years I have lived here, he was required to drive 2+ hours to the urban setting to sit in the probation office and then drive 2+ hours home again through several cities. No one was ever in danger from my son but this requirement certainly made him more available to offend than if he were allowed to stay home that evening. The county where he now lives has no such requirements for those under supervision and there is no evidence that such requirements are needed.
