I only had 2 months left on a 2 year probation, in which I have been by the book on my PO details per court order. I have a 7 month old baby and father is not in the picture and noone to take care of him besides me. my bond is 40K (which I am hearing is outrageous and not sure why it is that high). if I turn myself in a couple of days before my court date, will my court date stay the same? I cannot bond out due to no money. AND will I serve any time or just go back on probation?****Prior to my DUI's (both in 2010) and this VOP, I have NEVER gotten into any trouble and no legal problems.***
YOu are looking at time on the VOP and by law it is a minimum of 45 days day for day on the new charge. If you were a good probationer they may run the time you ahve to do in together.
You should find someone to take care of the baby before you turn yourself in and also get hold of a bondsman and see if they will get you out if you give them most of their meney and maybe accept payments.
You can also get credit for an inpatient d/a program so you might try to set that up too.
But find a place for the baby so that if you are not able to make bond and then for doing some time.
I wish it were better news.
