my brother was on probation in Johnson co. when he was arrested for being somewhere at the wrong time. He was a passager in a car when drugs where found in trunk. he had nothing on him or in arm reach. anyway he been in there for 3 months and still has 2 months before a court date in Hendricks co. his probation been revoked. If his charges get dismissed can his jail time be credited towards Johnson County?
Not likely that he can get transferred to a different jail, especially after this much time. Further, the norm is that you do not have credit for one charge if you are being held someplace else on another one, even if the second case is dismissed. He needs to talk to his attorney about this, however.
Yes. Further, any sentence in Hendricks county is to be consecutive to Johnson county.
