My husband was pulled over for speeding. As they ran his license we found out he had a warrent for his arrest. About a year ago he was on unsupervised probation for obstruction of an officer and shoplifting. This happend 5 years ago. We had thought we sent in all the fines he had to pay but we forgot he had to do some community service hours. What is the max time he will recieve?
I agree with the prior answer. He could be required to serve the remaining balance of his sentence, though we can often convince the judge to allow people to be reinstated on probation to allow them to complete community service. These cases are very fact-sensitive and really depend on whether you can convince the judge that it was an honest mistake, and that society is better served with him out of custody. We are happy to help; call our firm at 404-881-8866. We handle these cases regularly in your area and have had a lot of success in similar situations. Best wishes to you.
The max time he could receive for failure to do all his community service is most likely the balance of his probation or 2 years whichever is less. However, if the community service was made a special condition of his probation then he could have the full balance of his probation revoked. Now having said that, usually judges do not send people to prison for failure to do community service except in extreme circumstances. My advice is for your husband to contact the original lawyer that helped him with his case or a new lawyer in the area where he is on probation and have them work on this matter for him.
