Probation Violation/Surrender, CASE DISMISSED

August 7th 2008
Probation Violation/Surrender
Client was charged with violating her terms of probation. She had been on Methadone for several years and had been in rehabilitation facilities throughout the years. Her violation of probation was due to her admission of drug use, which included heroin and cocaine. The probation officer had her detained in Framingham State Prison until her final probation hearing. After several meetings with the probation department, they were persuaded not to ask for additional prison time and allow the client to be released from custody, to admit to the violation, and to place the case out for several weeks to observe her behavior in the community. After several weeks, she did well, and after a second hearing, the case was simply terminated, discharged, and a dismissal was entered.
