Why can I, as a parent or spouse of the defendant, not receive information about the defendant’s case?

Georgia State Law O.C.G.A. § 42-8-106 states that we are not allowed to discuss a probation case with anyone accept for the defendant, the defendant’s attorney that is appointed to represent the defendant, other government agencies involved in an investigation, and medical or mental health providers in relation to the defendant’s health and wellness. We will do our best to answer general questions that you have about probation, but the questions cannot be specific to any specific case.
