I lost my job and can’t afford to continue my court-ordered counseling. Am I going to jail?

If you are under any form of court supervision, including ACD, conditional pleas, probation, or anything else and you lose the ability to keep up with the terms of your sentence or plea, you need to notify the court right away.

Being forthright and proactive about your circumstances can go a long way toward preserving the good opinion the court already has of you, and will reduce the chances of a punitive response from the district attorney or judge.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you report your circumstances to the court, and may be able to help you find lower cost alternatives that meet your counseling requirement.

We work with people every day who are doing what’s necessary to meet their obligations, and experience life changes that complicate things.
