Minneapolis, MN asked in Criminal Law and Probate for Minnesota

Q: Why do I have two probation officers to report with in the same county. 1 is county 1 is doc but I never went to prison

P.o. doesnt help me from not recommiting crimes but push/force me to break laws in order to have any chamce of jumping through the hoops set upon me. Why?

They dont call me back. They dont mail me anything. They refuse to help me, why? Is this legal what they are doing to me?

I'm not allowed to drive and they give me little to no time before I am aware of our meetings.

I am court ordered to do treatment but probation denied me of going two times cause they didn't want me to be in those ones.

The treatment center that was approved Jas conflict of interest because one of the p.o.'s and the drug counselor are great friends and share a lot about me that violates my rights.

What about subs. 2(8)?

A: In some counties the DOC supervised felonies and community corrections supervises grosses and misdemeanors.

I fail to see how having two agents pushes you to commit crimes to comply with probation. That doesn’t make any sense. It’s unclear what help you are looking for but consulting with an attorney might be helpful.

A: It sounds like you may be on court probation on one case, and MN DOC supervised release on another. It's tough, but important to get along with your P.O.s. As far as issues with them, I'd suggest to try to go above and beyond in efforts to communicate, including setting up in person meetings to discuss. You could talk to your lawyer as well, but best to work it out directly with the P.O. If it's really bad, you can try their supervisor, or a"walk in" meeting with the P.O. of the day.
