Yes, an attorney can help you. It is always adviseable to retain a lawyer in criminal cases where jail is a possibility. After all, there will be a lawyer on the other side who's name is "Mr. Prosecutor". From your post it does not appear that this judge will be amenable to such explanations so it would be a great idea to have your lawyer contact the state and/or the probation officer to try and get them to agree to recommend an extension to allow your son to complete the sentence.Ask a similar question
Your son is getting in deeper trouble not putting the court obligation first before work - I know, I know ... we all have stories. But the judge isn't gonna give a darn - I would definately get a lawyer down there to help - it shouldn't cost much for one appearance in court - a few hundred dollars.
Your son is in danger of more time for not doing what was ordered done by a certain date.

An crimminal defense attorney can and will help. Judges tend to listen to defendants or persons on probation when they have an attorney. To avoid incarceration, your son should seek a criminal attorney.Ask a similar question
This is a very late answer to your question, but your son certainly should have retained a lawyer as he possibly was facing jail time for the violations.Ask a similar question
