He was sentenced 22 months for FTR then released at 15 months for good behavior. He was on probation up until Nov. 25th but violated his probation in September. This is his first VOP, will jail time be added? bail? remainder of sentence will be forced to sit?
Sex offender? Failed to register? Good chance he'll get the remaining seven (7) months of the 22 month sentence. They'll give him more if they can and if they file a new case.

he is still likely facing jail time even if its not a sex offense if the State is going to the expense of extraditing him from Arizona. they don't normally do that unless they consider the violation fairly serious.
Generally speaking, the sanction imposed for violating probation depends on the severity of the violation, the underlying charge, and several other factors. The underlying charge in this case is serious, and the other poster is correct in pointing out that the decision to extradite your boyfriend is a foreboding sign. He may be looking at additional confinement time.
Not sure the question about extradition was answered. All states but one follow the same process. If a person is wanted on a charge or PV and is arrested in another state, the person goes to court in the state where the arrest occurs and is asked if he or she waives extradition. If the person waives extradition if forces the state issuing the warrant to decide if they really want to spend the money and extradite the person. Generally once a waiver is obtained most extraditions occur within about 10 days.
If the person refuses to waive extradition, then the court where the person was arrested will normally set the case over up to 60 days for the requesting state to obtain a warrant of arrest signed by their Governor and send it to the state where the person was arrested and have that Governor sign it and send it to the court. If its not received in 60 days, the local court may release the person (but usually won't) or set it over up to another 60 days for the paperwork to arrive. Once served with a Governors warrant, the person can still challenge the extradition in court, but doing so is almost never successful. Bottom line, in most cases waiving extradition gets the process done faster and makes the state which issued the warrant decide if they really want to extradite or not.
