Travis is a very itelligent and talented young man that could truly make a successful future for himself providing he stay clean and continue to make better choices. Travis has come a long way with his anger and how he reacts in different situations. This writer has seen him mature immensely, and Travis should take great pride in his accomplishments.
Travis will benefit a great deal by keeping his time occupied with employment (full-time through out the summer.) Travis has also shown interest in football and would be excellent, once again provided that he remain abstinent from all substance abuse.
I respectfully submit the following recommendations to the Judge:
1.) Respondent shall be placed on 3 months probation with an expected discharge date of 12/03/03.
2.) Respondent shall be remanded to the In-Home PBT/Tether unit, to be arranged by the Court and will remain on same till further review. Costs incurred shall be paid by parents.
3.) 20 days on secure/non-secure detention to be held in abeyance and used at the discretion of the court.
4.) Respondent shall attain and retain full-time employment throughout summer-applying at a minimum of 5 places of employment per week-providing Probation Department with verification of same.
5.) All previous terms of probation will remain in full force.
