You will have to speak with a local attorney about your husband's situation; too many question must be addressed regarding his release. What is he on probation for? What was the probation sentence? What are his new charges? What is his criminal record? Is probation willing to continue his probation? Good luck.
The new charge is a state jail felony that carries a possible jail term of 180 days to 2 years. You need to hire a criminal defense attorney ASAP as the new charge is more serious than the probation violation.
The above answer does not constitute legal advice. You pay for legal advice; this is free.
He will likely get the probation revoked and he will be sentenced within the range of punishment for that offense (which depends on the amount of marijuana he had on that case. ) And, he may be assessed a state jail sentence on the new case (although some times the State will agree to plea down under 12.44 (a) for misdemeanor time on a felony conviction.) He needs a lawyer.
