What can we do if a Probation Officer is abusing their authority?

Question Details:

My son, 19, is on probation. His new PO is making him come in everyday. The problem is that she tells him every time he's there that she's going to do everything that she can to violate him and put him in jail. She's now making him fill out a job search sheet everyday with 15 contacts. If he only has 14, she'll violate him. So for 7 days, she wants 95 job contacts. Isn't that a bit much? She told him today that she is going to violate him every day until she has one that the judge cannot ignore. I suggested to my son to call the judge, but he's afraid he's just stuck.
