He never got any information about going to court,an he was on none report probation. He in Cobb county jail
First, I suggest that your BF hire an attorney, or possibly see if he will qualify for a public defender. Next, and this can be done without an attorney, I suggest that you or your BF contact his probation officer and/or the particular court his case is in (likely either superior or state court) to check on the actual court date. The particular court clerk's office can look your BF's name up in their system to see if there are any upcoming court dates. Depending on who your BF's probation officer is, they may not have submitted the revocation paperwork yet and/or the prosecutor's office (either Dist Atty or Solicitor) may not have formally charged him yet.
There are too a definite many variables here to give you a definite answer. If he is on felony probation, and the probation warrant lists only technical violations, then his hearing will probably be at the jail before a presiding judge within a couple of weeks. However some of the superior court (felony) judges require that the probationer appear back before them, and that could take a few weeks longer for him to get into a courtroom. So, it depends on who the original sentencing judge was. Also, if new crimes are alleged in the probation warrant, your boyfriend's case will then more likely go back to the original sentencing judge. At that point a decision will be made as to whether to attempt to revoke his probation based on the new crimes alleged. This could take around a month. At that point the case could be postponed for another month, at the request of the prosecutor in order to subpoena witnesses for the new alleged crimes.
If your boyfriend is on probation for a misdemeanor, his probation violation hearing will also be at the jail and heard by one of the regular state court judges. These hearing come up faster than the superior court hearings.
You need to get a lawyer for your boyfriend because at each and every step in the proceeding, whether felony or misdemeanor, there are opportunities for a lawyer who knows how the system works, to attempt to negotiate a consent order for his immediate release, or earlier court hearing date.
Each judge in these proceedings has his or her own preferences as to how these cases should be resolved, and if you do not know the judge's priorities you are completely travelling in the dark. Same goes, to a lesser degree to the assigned probation officers and the prosecutors, who are also involved in these hearings.
Additionally, if your boyfriend is on felony probation, and if his probation is revoked for more than a couple of months, he could end up going into the state prison system; which is something you certainly don't want.
What do you need to do now? Simple. Get a lawyer now who knows how these proceedings work.
It would depend on the judge's court calendar. You might get lucky and it could take a few days or if not, could take several months before being heard on a probation violation. I am happy to assist further if necessary.
