I was sentenced to 4 in and 6 out but it's so much stress on my family I'm really considering just don't my time in jail but I don't want to be gone for to long so how much time can they sentence me to.?
Whatever the max is. Hire a lawyer to speak with the prosecutor and get an idea what they would want.
First the Judge has to agree to convert your probation to "time".
Second the amount of time that you face depends up on the balance of unserved time that you could have gotten.
If you face 15 years and did 4 then you face another 11 in on a VOP (or, theoretically, as an alternative to probation), if it was 20 years then you face 16 (and so on).
But here's the skinny... You were placed on probation so that you could be monitored (with a ton of time hanging over your head) and during that 6 year time period so that you could both acclimate to life on the outside and prove to the court (and the State) that you are capable of living in society (albeit with significant restrictions) without violating the law.
If you violate they launch you, and if you don't then you you win your freedom (or as much of it as possible with a SO designation on your back).
When you ask a Judge to take you off of paper and put you in then you are essentially admitting that you cannot, or will not, function in society. Unless you are going to spend the rest of your life in prison there is a time when you will have to function in society, and so your request is not likely to be favorable received by the Court (or the government). This especially holds true in SO cases where, when you are released you will have to live with SO designation, registration and all of the "stress" that stems thereto from.
Still, it is your request to make.
Just know what you face before you ask, and if you ask then make sure to have a skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyer do the asking for you.
Wishing you and your family luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
It all depends on the maximum sentence to the particular charge or charges underlying your Sexual Offender probation. You are most likely facing the balance of a stiff sentence which is no doubt years of hard time. I strongly suggest that you reconsider throwing away the opportunity afforded you by the court. Comply with the albeit demanding requirements of Sexual Offender probation. Seek and obtain suitable employment. (This should better relieve your family of stress. Not you doing hard prison time,) Fulfill all your class and reporting requirements. That is my advice. The decision is yours alone to make. I hope you find my answer to your question helpful.
