    Answered . You son faces whatever the maximum sentence was for the original offense for which he was placed on probation for in the first place. Additionally, I would expect that he would also be charged with felony escape charges. In many states felony escape charges can carry consecutive sentences. This would mean that he could be sentenced for the original offense and be sentence to an additional term of incarceration to be served after serving the first sentence.
