    Lawyers agree

    Answered . There is no specific question here. In regard to technical state violations, the minimum is usually 6 months. He is entitle to be represented by an attorney so you may want to retain one for him.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . I'm in agreement with Mr. Keller's remarks. Depending upon his history on parole, he is probably looking a a 6 mos. hit. It's not entirely clear from your question, but he may be entitled to credit for the time he spent in the county jail due to the escape charge being dropped.

  3. 1

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . I would agree with my peers that he will likely have a 6 month violation sentence. Sounds about right.
