My bf was on probation with an ankle monitor. After testing positiv for marij he left the office took off the bracelet. He said he panicked becaus the po told him that he would revoke his bond. After 2 days he turned himself in. He is now charged with a probation violation misdemeanor and a felony for the monitor. The bond did not get revoked however in fact he has a bond for the misdemeanor but not for the felony. What does usually happen in such cases considering that he turned himself in?
There is usually no bond for arrest on probation violation and your BF will,have to wait for the sentencing court to,schedule a hearing for probation violation, this can sometimes take 4-6 weeks depending on the courts schedule. It is to his benefit that he turned himself in but he is still,in violation for the positive test and taking monitor off. You should hire Defense attorney ASAP - they might be able to speed the hearing process up and find some mitigating factors
