Asked in Contracts and Criminal Law for Alabama

Q: Once you have paid for the pretrial intervention program in full, do you still have to report to your probation officer

Once above program is paid will I only have to pay restitution? Or will I have to continue paying the monthly supervision fee, and drug screening fee?

A: Yes, you still need to report to the probation officer you are assigned to and continue to drug screen as well as comply with the all the other aspects of the program until you graduate the program and are told by the court that you are done.

A: You should go look at the probation order that you received from the Court. You signed it. If it requires you to do things -- then you do it. Continue with the program. The order is often a yellow page out of a form. In any event, that will tell you what you have to do. You just have to do what it says. Don't rely on that "nobody told me" defense. Read your probation order. Period.
