my boyfiend has 4 dui and serve 7 moths in jail is on 5 years probation, he also has to attend an 18 month dui program and regular visits with his p,o i should add he cannot drink. He has a warrant for his arrest for violating his probation for testing positive for alcohol he already turned his self in this is his first violation... how long do you guys think he will be in jail for?
It is hard to give a blanket answer and say he will serve X amount of time for this probation violation. The fact that he is on felony probation for a 4h DUI means there is significant time hanging over his head. Additionally there appears to be numerous reasons for the probation violation. A lot will depend upon the judge he appears in front of. He should seek the assistance of an attorney.
He needs the assistance of a really good attorney or he is facing a substantial amount of incarceration time. He needs someone who can talk to the probation officer and see if they are willing to still work with him. He may even need to go to a residential treatment program. I'm not sure what else an attorney can do without knowing what type of test he took. there may be a reason he tested positive other than he drank alcohol but a good attorney will be able to look at that as a psossibility to avoid additional incarceration.
