You should consult an attorney for legal advice regarding the facts of your specific case and designed to help you with your personal needs.
The charges are felonies punishable by prison, but the amount of time he is actually looking at is determined by his sentencing guidelines scoresheet. Without knowing your boyfriend's prior criminal history or sentencing guidelines score, an accurate answer cannot be provided to you.
He is looking at major jail time. If you care about him, you should find him an attorney ASAP!!!!!!!
Each Aggravated Assault is a 3rd Degree Felony carrying a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison and is a level 6 offense on the Sentencing Guidelines. His actual sentence depends on his prior record and on what the prosecutor wants to offer him for violating his probation.
If the case is in central Florida he is facing some amount of incarceration. His leaving for Ohio is referred to as absconding which both the prosecution and judges take a dim view of. The offense he was convicted of, Aggravated Assault, is a livel 6 offense which carries 36 points as a primary offense. the second Aggravated Assault as an additional offense is another 18 points. He would also get at least 6 points for violating his probation. Therefore , he scores a minimum of 2 years in prison. Since I don't know what his prior record is, I can't calculate in any points for that. The fact that the state wanted him extradited means they are very serious about his case and will undoubtedly be seeking more time than the minimum sentence. It is very important that you immediately contact an attorney to minimize the length of time he will be incarcerated.
