My husband is a sexual offender. I believe in his innocence. He was let out of prison and put on probation. Well, one of his things he had to complete was a Sex Offender class. He wouldn't admit to the crime so they terminated him from the class but he could re-enter in 6months. April of this year they issued a warrant for him for this reason. But he wouldnt be eligible to enroll in this class until April 30,2001. The warrant was issued in December the judge signed it in Febuary and it wasnt served until April 14. We went to Florida and turned him in an his bail bond hearing was today. They denied him because of the class. This isnt right because he couldnt sign back up until 2 days ago. So they are holding him for no reason. I dont know what to do I have no help. We dont even know when his court date is. I want my husband back home We've just been married alittle over a month and I dont know what to do to get him home.

Did your husband serve all of his time, or was he released early ? When placed on probation, was he assigned a parole officer? If so, did he contact his parole officer and advise him/her of the situation? Unfortunately its a catch 22 situation for him now. If he has violated parole, they can basically hold him for as long as they want (from what I understand so if I am wrong... I am sure you all will accept my apology.)

The only reason why I believe this is because I have a friend who violated his parole (not a sex offense) and he was in custody for nearly 3 weeks before he even went before a judge.

Probation, or parole, is a conditional release from prison. Your husband agreed to certain conditions, including the sex offender class, when he was released and agreed that if he violated those conditions, he would be locked up. Whether he or you think he is innocent is irrelevant: a conviction means he is legally guilty. He will have a probation or parole violation hearing at which he can explain his reason for not completing the class.
