People v. Burton, No. A122183

By FindLaw Staff on September 01, 2009 3:51 PM

In an appeal from the 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.
