At the time he got arrested (December 19, 2010) he was under probation and ever since has been locked up. Every time he goes to court he gets remanded and the judge is offering 3 years. He has a year and 7 months locked up will the time he has be counted or he would have to start all over again ?

There is a plea negotiation ongoing. Legal counsel is necessary to protect the interests of the defendant. Assuming he is represented by a public defender, it might be advisable to retain private counsel at least for a second opinion. The judge and prosecutor have significant discretion, and there may be ways to obtain a better result if the defendant's counsel invests time and energy in attempting to get the best deal for the client.


On the D felony the sentencing range is 2-7 years in state prison. The E felony carries a maximum sentence of 4 years but it most likely will be merged into the D. These sentences can run consecutively to any sentence imposed for violating probation but he will get credit for the already served and he wouldn't have to start all over.

I should add that if he is on probation for a prior felony the sentence can be enhanced but it seems like the court is offering him three anyway


If the prior felony was a violent felony, the range is 5-7 on the Att. Rob 2. If the first was non-violent, the range is 3-7. On the E, its 2-4 or 3-4.


Max for Att Rob 2 is 7 years.
All the time counts since his arrest.
The issue is whether probation time is concurrent or consecutive.
