Arrest someone for Grand Theft Auto

Answered 10 hours ago by attorney Ryan L. Hyde   |   1 Answer
If you reported the crime back in March and the police elected not to charge it, then you would have to petition the District Attorneys office to file charges.  Civillians do not have the power to file charges in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, that power rests solely with the Police and District Attorneys.  Given that the financial matters have been cleared up its entirely possible that they would decline to charge as it may look like a retribution complaint.  If you feel strongly enough about it talk to the police and/or the District Attorney and see if charges can still be brought.  ...

The best way to go about one is not to get one.  If you do get one you should talk to a local attorney.  Missing one meeting isn't usually going to trigger a technical violation, usually its a pattern of behavior.  That being said missing a single meeting is a technical violation.  The APO would not threaten you with jail if this was just a single missed meeting, so I would say its imperative that you are working with an attorney and trying to get back in the good graces of your APO.  APO's are vested with a great deal of power to detain probationers and they often wield it like an axe.  ...
