If a person qualifies and is sentenced as a youthful offender, then the minimum mandatory penalties do not apply. However, it is in the Judge's discretion whether a defendant will be sentenced as a youthful offender. I would suggest hiring a lawyer to look into sentencing options for your boyfriend.
If you fail to appear for a court date, the Judge can issue a warrant for your arrest. However, if you fail to appear due to being incarcerated in another county, so long as it is brought to the Court's attention, the Judge will probably not issue a warrant for your arrest, but should instead reset the case.
If the arrest violated the 4th amendant, then your attorney can file a Motion to Suppress. If the Judge agrees that the arrest was not lawful and violated your constitutional rights, the Judge can suppress (not allow the State to use against you) all evidence obtained after the arrest, which could be very beneficial to your defense. I would suggest you hire an attorney to go over the specific facts of your case with you.

Good Luck!

Usually a Judge will be hesitant to grant early termination of probation if there has been a violation, however, if the probation officer is in agreement with the request, you may want proceed with the request for early termination.

The letter you received is probably a civil demand letter. When there is an alleged theft, the retail store can not only request to prosecute you criminally, but they can also file a civil lawsuit to collect monetary damages. The letter is for the civil matter only, it has nothing to do with the criminal case or a potential arrest.
