  1. He will have two cases. One for the new felony. One for the probation violation. Hire an attorney right away.


  2. You can go to jail for the balance of the sentence he was originally out on probation for. Then, while in jail, he'll have to answer to the second felony, and the first will likely impact the sentence in the second.


  3. His probation can be revoked up to the maximum of the the punishment range the new charge carries. If he is a first offender, however, he can be re-sentenced to the maximum possible on the original charge.
