PETITIONING THE COURT
To modify the conditions of supervision as follows:
As directed by the probation officer, the defendant shall participate in a cognitive behavioral treatment program.
Justification: On November 14, 2005, the offender was ordered to abide by conditions of probation for five years. She was placed on probation after committing financial aid fraud. It appears, almost five years later, that her deceiving mentality has not changed.
The offender has completed the 250 hours of community service as ordered by the Court. However, after numerous failed attempts to make contact with the offender, on September 1, 2010, she as directed via text message, to contact this officer in the morning hours of September 2, 2010, as a face to face contact was necessary. On September 2, 2010, the offender failed to contact this officer as directed. This officer attempted to contact the offender via phone, email, text and at the residence; all without success. When contact was ultimately made, the offender made numerous excuses as to why contact was not made, none of which appeared plausible.
In an effort to assist her decision-making skills, the offender agreed to participate in Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), a cognitive behavior treatment program. The sanction imposed addresses the issue of accountability and protection for the community. Therefore, it is respectfully recommended that no further action be taken by the Court at this time.
The offender agrees with this modification and has signed the Probation Form 49a Waiver, herein attached.
