Is it a violation of my parole if I get stopped by a cop but don’t get a ticket?

I was parked with a friend of mine. She was driving when a cop pull over and asked my name. They ran my name and it came back clean. They asked me a couple of questions and then just told me to keep up the good work and left. I have felony probation and I'm going to a program that my PO enrolled me in. Can my PO violate me even though I didn't do anything wrong?

    Unless the officer reports to the Po that you may have been committing a crime or violated a condition of your parole it doesn't sound that way. You should be advise though that many times a person can be violated for a suspected crime that is never filed as a new charge because the burden of proof is much lower for parole violations.

    Doubtful. You were not charged with anything that could be considered a probation violation and appear to have been cooperative with the police. You should not have any problems.

    You have to violate your probation, being in a car stopped for a traffic ticket or being stopped for a traffic ticket is not a probation violation. (This does not apply if the stop is for a DUI or other Misdemeanor only infractions).

    Under the facts given, you did not violate your parole. For it to be a violation, the officer needs to issue a citation or arrest you.
