My brother was sentenced to a year in state jail for not showing up to his probation appointments and following through. He didn't break another law, but his probation officer brought it to the courts. The family is likely going to help him with an appeal and wondering about the time frame that would take and if he will be able to post bond while waiting for his appeal? He has not hurt anyone, just made a poor choice and got put on probation. He wasn't trying to be defiant or resistant, he's just a young man who has been diagnosed with ADHD and has never been able to focus on getting himself where he needs to be.
