(Continued)

The aberration has more to do with recent changes made by the Legislature to reduce prison populations. As a result, local probation departments have to handle probation violations differently through sanctioning methods or face penalizing funding cuts. In past years, those violators would have been revoked and incarcerated. Thus, a number of people coming onto probation now get a false impression that they will not suffer any real consequences for commission of what is considered a technical violation. They are learning otherwise, as the increase of filings would indicate.

I believe that this point should be viewed by the readers of this article. It should, also, be noted that the opinion expressed in the article is that of the interviewee, and does not reflect in any way the position or official policy of the agency to which he is affiliated.

Thank you,

James R. French, Director Palo Pinto County CSCD 29th Judicial District
