Months in the Boyd Co. Detention center and was released to a detainee in Bath Co. For not paying my child support there served a few days in jail there and released with a ankle monitor with conditions I start making payments on my child support the ankle monitor was removed once the judge was convinced I would make payments. Now in Boyd Co. They are violating my probation and I tried several times to contact the probation office in Boyd Co. With no results for several weeks other than recordings when I called. When I did finally get in contactwith them by phone I was informed I was being violated. I was not informed of what to do once my court action was answered in Bath Co. Is there anything I can do?

A: Any probation violation is subject to a hearing before the Judge. You could deny the violation and seek a hearing on whether a violation occurred. Just because probation and parole allege a violation, is not a finding of violation, that determination is left for the Judge.

A: Yes. You can be violated for absconding, which is a violation and you can also be violated for your rearrest on the child support charges, which is also a violation of your probation.
