Garden Grove, CA asked in Criminal Law for California

Q: I am on ab109 and last week my p.o put a GPS ankle bracelets on me and told me I couldn't have cantact with my wife.

My wife has never been in any trouble with the law and this was never part of my probation outline. What can I do? Is this legal for her to abuse her power this way? There is no domestic violance reports or any reports for that fact.

A: Your PO clearly believes they have sufficient cause to place this restriction on you. It's in your best interest to cooperate or risk a violation. You should POLITELY ask your PO why and whats needs to be done to have it removed. Don't start making claims on abuse of power. Get along. You could also consult with your original attorney for advice. Good luck.
