my boyfriend got arrested friday morning and is being held 72 hours and then having court. i dont know if he needs a lawyer or what to do. i have had no contact with him.
Yes, he needs a defense lawyer. Basic rule: If going to court, ALWAYS have a lawyer.
The most important words in your question are "probation violation;" this means you need a lawyer to assist you. Please consult with a criminal defense attorney before going to court.
If he has a probation violation, as you indicate, he should be represented in court. Get an attorney.
