good afternoon. so a brief follow up, basically in our case a probation order isnt worth the paper its written on, a person can only be charged for a breach while currently on probation, once the order expires they are released of any obligations under the probation order. We ended up having to charge the individual again with separate fire code offences, instead of a fail to comply charge. under section 32 of the FPPA we have the ability for a compliance order, which is what we should have done instead. long story short we have had to restart the entire process once again with this individual, normally one would think that after being found guilty and fined for a fail to comply that person would have had the work completed, but its been almost a year since the guilty verdict and no work has been completed.
