You are right. On prop 36 you are given 3 chances to mess up as long as they are drug related; however, one non-drug-related violation can send you straight to prison. Throughout my whole court case fighting a violation for a non-drug-related offense, I was shocked how many times the DA and the PO told me "no matter if you win or lose, you're still going to be on probation and have to come into the PO office" along with "its your first violation, you still have two more chances". all said in the same breath. Basicaly, they were saying why fight it. My response was "how about no violations!" and i kept fighting it because i knew i was in the right. GRRrrrrrr!
