My boyfriend was charged for stealing a motor vehicle to the 2nd degree, he was released on house arrest and cut the ankle monitor off, he got caught the same day.
From the limited facts you have provided, this appears to be an escape in the third degree. This is a gross misdemeanor which carries up to 364 days. If he has two or more prior escapes this would be a class C felony with up to 5 years.
The other consequences of this are that bail will be set very high and he is much less likely to get a plea bargain, drug court, DOSA or other programs.
