My boyfriend is on Felony Probation from a crime he committed at age 17. He is 21 now and just got a Dwi last night. He has never violated his probabtion before, or failed a UA. Im terrified and am not sure what to do, or what the outcome will be. If anyone has suggestions please let me know.
I most definitely agree with my colleague. Securing qualified criminal defense counsel is critical at this point, especially since your boyfriend is looking at problems coming from two different directions. His PO might choose to request that he be detained (held in jail) for the potential violation of probation raised by the new arrest. Counsel retained immediately may be able to forestall such action. I would not wait to get on this project.
