Re: Complaint against a PO

One more thing, I was told that we could file a complaint
against this probation officer who was accusing him of things
he was not doing. She even told him that she had the pull to
put him in prison, because her husband was an officer with
the court he was assigned to. (I felt that this was a threat.)
So what can I do to get his investigated? Will it be just a
case of "He said, She said?" His court appointed attorney
told me that he would fight for him, until I mentioned that
he had signed for his time. Then the guy said, "Well if he
has signed for his time, it's a done deal, and nothing can be
done about it."
It sounds to me like this was a setup. I believe that my step-
son signed those papers under duress, but I don't know who I
should turn to for help.
He told me that he was going to TDC for about "4 to 5 months"
and he would be released. I don't believe this. I am highly
pissed at this situation, because I can attest that he was
NOT using any kind of drugs the whole time he has lived with
So any advice will be helpful. And yes this does suck. I
can't believe that our criminal justice system is such that
people like this probation officer can "assume" that a person
is taking drugs, without any corroborating evidence. She had
free sway on what happened and I feel that her assessment was
wrong. But how do I prove it?
Just asking.... thanks
