    Answered . That is going to be dependent on a number of factors specific to your boyfriend's case and criminal history. If he is on probation for a felony drug count and violates with a dirty urine and a new law violation, he might be reinstated, but also might get jail or prison time. He will be held no bond on the violation cases until resolved. It depends on the judge in this jurisdiction and on how persuasive his lawyer will be to get him back out on supervision. Good luck.

    Answered . There is no way for any of us to tell you if he is going to be released or not. The biggest factor is the judge, because he or she makes the ultimate decision. In the mean time, collect mitigating evidence such as proof of employment or school enrollment. If you have anything showing that he has been trying to get help or treatment for his drug problem, that would be good. You could also look into available drug programs that his insurance may accept. Since you are not married, you will have limited access to this information. If he is released, he should certainly try to get a valid license before his next court date. He should hire an attorney in that county to help him.
