Abril set to be in court today

Published 2:57 pm Friday, March 11, 2011

Former Polk County Sheriff Chris Abril is scheduled to appear in Henderson County Court today, Monday, March 14, facing two counts of probation violation for not paying monies.
According to officials, in most cases, a probation officer will recommend to a judge that the probation be continued if the fines are paid prior to court. The sitting judge will make the decision. In some cases if the monies are paid, the probation violation charge is dismissed.
Abril was charged last month with probation violations for not paying probation fees, sexual offender treatment program fees and court costs.
Abril has been on probation since Feb., 2008 when he pled guilty to two counts of solicitation to take indecent liberties with a minor for incidences that occurred in 1988 and 1989. The recent probation violation was Abril’s second violation after pleading guilty to driving while impaired last year.
Abril owed just under $1,000 in fines and fees.
