Felony warrant for probation violation and a new charge, can he not serve jail time?
4 attorney answers
Your son will need to contact a lawyer. Generally, bail is set for him to get out until the next court date. If he was not supposed to leave the state on probation, and left knowing that he should not have left, his bail might be too high to pay.
It depends on the seriousness the charge, how much time has elapsed, what sort of history he has had in the interim, what sort of notices were sent and where. Probation violations are not hard to prove usually, and so an attorney will be able to tell you what is relevant under the law and what is not regarding his ultimate consequences. There is very precisely case law on the subject.
That is possible. He will be brought to court for his initial appearance on the probation violation and the warrant/new charge. The judge will most likely set bail and give him a date to return. Bail will depend on the seriousness of the violation and the new charge. He should hire an attorney to help navigate through this process.
It’s not likely to have NO consequences for leaving while on probation and getting a new charge. You should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney in your area for help with this case. Good luck!
