My husband was placed on 5yrs of Community Corrections in July of this year after pleading guilty to a possesion (Class D) felony. To make a really long story short, he checked in with the community corrections officer on 10-26-20 and taken into custody by way of bench warrant for failure to comply with CCP. His revocation hearing was on 11-5-20 and was in fact revoked to serve remainder sentence in confinement with AL Dept. of Corr. However, on 11-6-2020 I received a letter here at our home (that is dated 11-3-20) stating he has a mandated CRO appointment on 12-14-20. (It says this is mandated because of the drug possesion charge.) I'm simply confused because there was not any new charges acquired in 11-2020 simply a violation. So are they just super behind in mailing this letter or are they giving him a chance to apply for CRO diversion or does his sentence to ADOC trump all of this?
A criminal defense lawyer is a lawyer (mostly barristers) specializing in the defense of individuals and companies charged with criminal activity. Some criminal defense lawyers are privately retained, while others are employed by the various jurisdictions with criminal courts for appointment to represent indigent persons; the latter are generally called public defenders. The terminology is imprecise because each jurisdiction may have different practices with various levels of input from state and federal law or consent decrees. Some jurisdictions use a rotating system of appointments with judges appointing a private practice attorney or firm for each case. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criminal_defense_lawyer
