§1208. In lieu of probation revocation proceedings

Whenever a probation officer has probable cause to believe that a person under the supervision of the probation officer has violated a condition of probation but the violation does not constitute a crime, the probation officer, instead of commencing probation revocation proceedings under section 1205, may offer to the person on probation the option of adding one or more of the following conditions to the person's probation: [2013, c. 133, §14 (AMD).]

1. Daily reporting program.
[ 2013, c. 133, §14 (RP) .]
2. Public restitution program; treatment program.  Participation in a public restitution program or treatment program administered through a Department of Corrections' correctional facility; or
[ 2013, c. 133, §14 (AMD) .]
3. Residing at facility.  Residing at a Department of Corrections' correctional facility for a period of time not to exceed 90 days.
[ 2013, c. 133, §14 (AMD) .]

If the person on probation agrees, in writing, to the additional conditions, the conditions must be implemented. If the person on probation does not agree or if the person fails to fulfill the additional conditions to the satisfaction of the probation officer, the probation officer may commence probation revocation proceedings under section 1205 or 1205-B for the violation that the probation officer had probable cause to believe occurred. If the person on probation fulfills the additional conditions to the satisfaction of the probation officer, the probation officer shall so notify the person in writing and the probation officer may not commence probation revocation proceedings for the violation that the probation officer had probable cause to believe occurred. [2013, c. 133, §14 (AMD).]
