My fiance was charged with a felony back in 2011 for possession of marijuana w/ intent to distribute. The judge gave him 1st offender & a 10 do 1. He served 9 months in prison & then was released. A few days before Christmas in 2012 he was arrested & charged w/ criminal trespassing(misdemeanor). At the end of July when he reported to his probation officer they arrested him for picking up a new charge. He has been in jail for about 75 days now. The probation officer told our lawyer today that if the District Attorney decides to not revoke his 1st offender then the P.O. will write a waiver & have him released. How do they determine whether or not to revoke his 1st offender? My fiance is up to date on all of his fines, will still have his job when he gets out, & has maintained good behavior.
