My son took a plea deal in 2014 after he was arrested and his charges were reduced to 3 misdemeanors and one felony for trafficking in marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia . Now his drug screen after almost 3 years showed marijuana after his ex girlfriend broke up with him and destroyed his heart and then turned him in for revenge. The prosecutor is bringing up 4 misdemeanors out of nowhere and saying that these charges were from 2014. No summons was served and if they had a summons for him to appear they would have had a bench warrant issued and he would have already been in jail. He goes to the probation officer every month and no one has ever brought up these charges until now which he already answered for in 2014. How can they now bring up these misdemeanors and say that he now has to answer to them 4 years later when he already spent 60 days in jail from his arrest in 2014 for these charges?
If they were part of a plea agreement and they are part of his probation then yes. Get him an attorney.
