Commonwealth v. Shires

In Commonwealth v. Shires, the PA Superior Court discussed the distinction and significance of conditions of probation and/or parole imposed by the sentencing court, and conditions of supervision, which can be imposed by the probation and/or parole department. Here, the conditions of supervision that the defendant allegedly violated were never ordered by the court nor was notice of the conditions provided to the defendant. Thus, his conviction for violating those orders was vacated.
