Q:     I admitted to my P.O that I sent an inappropriate pic while on Sex Offender probation.  My P.O. called me into her office the other day saying that she got a complaint about me sending a an inappropriate pic to someone so I admitted that a few months back I had sent this girl who I was dating a pic and that was all that I had done. As it turns out the P.O. called me in there because I was part of a group text and someone sent a “dick pic” in it and one of the people in it assumed that I had sent it and called my P.O.  Now my P.O. says that she’s going to amend my violation report and have them revoke my bond (they went through my phone and found nothing and got mad at me for not having and text history in my phone except to my mother).  My lawyer says not to worry but that’s easier said then done. I only have 12 months left on my probation and have been doing everything they asked.

Answered And…. Do you have a question?

More importantly… You have a lawyer (and, sadly it sure sounds to me like you are gonna need one) and you should reserve all further commentary and discussions about your case or situation for the privacy of your lawyer ears (in which case you will be protected, unlike your AVVO post which is public and can theoretically be used against you in Court).   


With due respect to your lawyer, you are right to be concerned as the simple fact is that most all 
PO’s, prosecutors and even Judges seemingly cannot wait to violate and incarcerate sex offenders, so you are probably behind the proverbial 8-ball.  Further, and complicating your situation, is your having wiped the history on your phone which, while possibly entirely innocent, doesn’t come close to passing “the stink test”.

Look, you are on Sex Offender Probation and, apart from CC, there is no more restrictive / onerous non-incarcerative sanction.  You are walking on eggshells and would be wise to keep that in mind.  
Being on probation (of any variety – but especially Sex Offender Probation) is an alternative to incarceration. It is a gift of sorts, albeit it is given by an Indian giver who can take it back at any time (the alternative being jail). It behooves you to remember that at all times while serving your probationary period. It may help to think of your time on probation as walking on a tightrope. Stray just a little to either side, lose your concentration or balance even for a moment and you fall. However, instead of landing on the ground you land in jail or prison.  In your case, and again, always remember that PO’s, prosecutors and even Judges seemingly cannot wait to violate and incarcerate sex offenders. 
You might consider taking a look at both my Avvo Legal Guide on surviving probation / CC in Florida as well as my YouTube Webisode on “Power Tripping PO’s” as they both contains a great deal of information on the subject, supplement this answer and may prove to be helpful to you.
