Jail Time for Probation Violation California
In People v. Ambrose (1992) 7 Cal. App. 4th 1917 [9 Cal. Rptr. 2d 812], the defendant was placed on probation on condition that he serve 240 days in the county jail.
The defendant violated probation. the court reinstated him on probation on the condition that he successfully complete a residential alcohol abuse program at Diablo Valley Ranch (the ranch) and that he waive not only the 196 days of custody credit he had accrued, but also any credit he would earn for time spent at the ranch. (7 Cal. App. 4th at p. 1920.)
The defendant completed the program and then violated probation again. the trial court revoked probation and imposed the previously suspended concurrent three-year prison terms.
Due to the defendant's prior waiver of custody credit, the court granted no credit for that time.
