The PO wasn't there- I guess word didn't make it to her. The GAL showed up confused. The judge asked difficult child if he had learned his lesson and told him to stay out of trouble and released him. The defense attny told the judge I was having problems financially because I couldn't maintain full time employment with all the appts and such so we would ask the court to reduce the appts with the PO or limit the time on probation. The judge said she couldn't do anything about that and kept all other terms of the last sentencing in place. So, difficult child is on the ankle bracelet and will be on probation until the PO sees fit to let him off. (Assuming he doesn't get into trouble again. HUH HUH) Now I need to see if I can get him into day camp for the next 2 weeks since this was unexpected (he wasn't due to get released until the 26th).
