AGO Opinions with Topic: RIGHT TO DETAIN PROBATION VIOLATOR ARRESTED BY PROBATION OFFICER
AGO 1958 No. 196 >  May 26, 1958
ARREST - WITHOUT WARRANT - PROBATION VIOLATOR - DETENTION PENDING HEARING - CUSTODIAN OF JAIL - RIGHT TO DETAIN PROBATION VIOLATOR ARRESTED BY PROBATION OFFICER - JAILS
ARREST ‑- WITHOUT WARRANT ‑- PROBATION VIOLATOR ‑- DETENTION PENDING HEARING -- CUSTODIAN OF JAIL ‑- RIGHT TO DETAIN PROBATION VIOLATOR ARRESTED BY PROBATION OFFICER -- JAILS ‑- RIGHT TO DETAIN... A state probation officer may arrest a probation violator without a warrant, but it is his duty to take him with reasonable promptness before the court granting the probation for disposition; and if for any reason he cannot be disposed of by the court at that time, his right to further detention is dependent upon the issuance of a warrant.  The sheriff, as custodian of the jail, may, but is not required to, detain a probationer arrested without a warrant by a state probation officer for a parole violation.
