SHOCK PROBATION IS NOT JUSTICE !


SHOCK PROBATION IS UNAPPEALABLE POWER GIVEN TO THE JUDGE THAT DECREES THAT YOUR CHILD OR LOVED ONE'S  RIGHT TO LIFE WAS LESS THAN ANY LAWFULLY PRESCRIBED SENTENCE.


THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!!


Shock Probation is used in  ONLY  states:


Kentucky

Texas

New York

Indiana

Missouri

Ohio


Shock probation allows a sentencing judge to reconsider the convicted offenders  original sentence  to prison.  It  is presumed that a short term of imprisonment will  SHOCK the offender into changing their criminal behavior.  An offender can apply for shock probation (usually  in 30 to 120 days) by coming before the judge with the request  for shock probation.


This law allows a judge to make a mockery of the value of life of those killed by drunk drivers by not making the convicted offender serve the prescribed sentence according to the sentencing guideline.   The victims, therefore,  who  have lost a loved one to this  PREVENTABLE crime not only become  victims of the drunk driver but victims of  "shock probation".
