Convicted First Time Offender Of Embezzlement... Should Not Have Taken The Plea

I am a 30 year old female that was convicted of embezzlement in Sept 2012. I work part time as a waitress as that is the only job I can find, have 2 kids ages 6 and 3 and am married. I did not get to do the first offenders program so my felony stays on my record permanently. I have 2 years probation and 50 hrs community service plus paying restitution.

I am so frustrated with my probation officer and no one will help me. She has missed 3 appointments she made because of her mistakes and I am the one paying for them literally. The first was to be at her office. I showed up 30 minutes early she marked my name off the list never called me back and then she went to my house instead. The second she said she would be there after 5pm on a certain date...she never showed but then showed up the following night knowing I was at work. The third was yesterday I was home all day long never left except at 6:30 I went to the neighbors house behind me to get my kids and have them come in from playing. I was not even gone 5 minutes, the garage door was open, the front door was open and I left her a note stating I had stepped over to the neighbors to get the kids to call me if she rang the bell and I did not answer. I was not even gone 5 minutes and she came and went no phone call. I stayed up until 11:30 pm last night waiting for her only to get a phone message form her this morning at 9:30am stating she came by but no one answered to call her to reschedule. So I called and left her a message TO CALL ME TO RESCHEDULE! 10 minutes ago my door bell rings, its her so I answer the door she apologizes for the mix up yesterday and says thanks for being home and leaves!

I wish I could make 40 bucks a pop just by ringing someones door bell and verifying their home! She even admitted to reading the note! I am so beyond at my wits end with this crap!

At least you don't have prison time. It may be inconvenient, but better get used to it. She's not there to work around your schedule.
