My fiance was arrested two months ago for a stolen property charge and they also charged him floor his warrant for violation of probation. He was on drugs pretty bad at the time which was the reason he didn't go to court and violated in the first place. We r trying to get him into the ROC program but they have been telling us he needs to be evaluated for two months now. We are trying to prepare for the worst possible situation but still going he can get accepted by the courts.
My understanding is that the evaluation program is quite a bit shorter, but that should not be the real concern: he is charged with a crime of theft. The program may not accept him based on this more than anything else.
I'm guessing your fiancé has an attorney. Likely court-appointed and thus not available to you this holiday weekend. Tell your fiancé to call his attorney on Monday.

This depends somewhat on what crime he was placed on probation for. If he has a violation and the original crime was a felony he may not qualify for the program. In any event it doesn't take two months to answer that question. Your fiancé needs an attorney if he doesn't already have one.
