SAN DIEGO CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY--20 years experience
He needs an attorney. This is a matter best considered under the applicable State or Federal law. I would strongly suggest that you consult with a local attorney (perhaps selected from the AVVO website resources) with experience in this area of law, to offer a free initial consultation and perhaps assist with the process. Once you are comfortable with he or she, hire them to represent you. If this information was helpful to you, even if you do not like or agree with the advice, please let me know by clicking on the “Helpful” or “Best Answer” button. Or, if I really hit a home run, write a positive Review. Good luck!
This information is provided as general guidance only, not actual legal advice. I have not reviewed your paperwork, and unless this is a Maryland case, I am not licensed to practice law in your State. The fine points of your question are often found in the laws of your State. So, this response is not intended to be legal advice and you should not rely on this information to make decisions. I urge you instead to consult with a local attorney.
It sounds like the Probation Department put a hold on him, so he can't be bailed out. What is he on probation for and which adult court is he going to go to?
It looks like his juvenile crime was serious, because the new crime is just a petty crime. Overall, I don't think the punishment is going to be harsh, because the violation isn't that serious.
