Likely not, but you need to have a personal injury attorney who specializes in sexual assault of minor cases look at the circumstances of the release. There are situations where releases can be set aside, but they are rare and narrow.

Good luck to you.

You should always try to stay on your probation officer's good side while at the same time remembering that the judge is actually the final authority on what to do about any alleged violations. It is important to get your own attorney if they attempt to revoke or modify your probation.
