Legal Question in Criminal Law in California

I have to report to the jail on 8/5/13 to serve 150 day sentence. I meet with probation today & explained to them that I have a trip planned out of the country at the end of Sep into Aug & they suggested that I get on calendar to requested a modification in my stay date and permission to leave the country. How do I do this?

You have a sentence of almost a half a year in jail and you planned a trip out of the country? You sound like an exam question on my ethics final exam. The only correct answer on that exam was to avoid you like the plague.

If you go to the clerk of the court's office they will help you get back on calendar. Hopefully you have tickets dated prior to the date you were sentenced. You should also call your attorney.
