Name: People v. O’Connell
Case #: C040876
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 3 DCA
Opinion Date: 04/11/2003
Subsequent History: None

A written report by the director of drug program that appellant had failed to attend any of 20 sessions was admissible at appellant’s probation revocation, despite its hearsay character. The report is akin to the documentary evidence that traditionally has been admissible in probation revocation proceedings. Unlike the use of former testimony, the report was prepared in response to a referral by the court, and specifically on the issue of appellant’s compliance with the program requirements.
