People v. Burton, No. A122183
In an appeal from a trial court's order summarily revoking defendant's probation on the basis of a petition charging a violation that the prosecution later failed to prove, the order is affirmed where, once the expiration of a probation period is tolled, then as long as a probationer is found to have committed some probation violation during the probation period, as charged in a petition filed during the probation period, the trial court retains jurisdiction to revoke probation after the expiration of the probation term, even if the tolling was based on a violation the prosecution did not ultimately prove.
