  • If he has an excellent track record like you describe, and he follows through today as you said, he should be fine. I was a po for 17 years.....I never heard of anyone being violated for something like that! The relationship with the po is most often based on the compliance level of the person on probation, by the way. What would be the point in causing problems for someone for missing a reporting form date if they contact the office the next day and follow up? If it was "the last straw" after numerous warnings that would be a different situation. I know there are mean probation officers, but ultimately it has to go before a judge or hearing officer so the situation does have to warrant the action!

  • With one day, I think it'll be all good. I'd be waiting at the door when they opened today.

  • It will be pretty obvious he didnt violate on purpose and if he is there early and doesnt make this a habit, most po will let him slide once.

  • If he PO is cool then he probably doesnt have anything to worry about. Probation violations and things like that often come down on how the PO and criminals relationship is. Some are real jerks, some arent. I think he will be fine.
