On probation and get a ticket driving w/out license and possession of paraphernalia in another county but haven't plead guilty but incarcerated in probation county for theft because his father accused him of being stealing from his storage unit. All misdemeanor charges. What should he expect
You say a petition to revoke his sentence has been filed. He will have a hearing on that. The probation officer wil make a recommendation. The prosecutor may offer him an agreed resolution. The bottom line is that the judge can make him serve his full sentence in jail or may put him back on probation, possibly for a longer period or with additional conditions. The new charges are new offenses and will be resolved either by an agreement or by trials. It's possible that the prosecutor will be willing to make an agreement co\vering both the new theft charge and the probation violation. He needs a lawyer to help him sort through all this.
He should consult with an attorney or request a public defender. He has criminal cases in more than one county each having a possibility of jail.
