Violation of Probation

At least 300 words:  You are a parole officer whose caseload includes a single mother with three hyperactive, attention-deficit disordered young children. She receives no support from her ex-husband. Her own mother wants nothing to do with her or her children, believing that “God is punishing her.” The parolee works as a topless dancer but hates it. She continues dancing because it pays the bills so well. You know that she smokes marijuana on a fairly regular basis in an effort to deal with stress.  Obviously, this is a violation of probation. However, if you file a violation report on her, she will go back to prison. You know she is doing the best she can with her kids, she is heavily involved with their school, and they are strongly bonded to her. You worry about what will happen to the kids. What would you do? Apply at least four ethical systems to support your action one way or the other.  Ethical Systems: Utilitarianism, deontological, virtue ethics, ethics of care, egoism, religion, natural law, teleological
