My boyfriend was arrested in 2005 and released into a drug program. He has satisfactorily completed the program. Due to having hardships before meeting me he asked his parole officer to enter him in a halfway house so that he can benefit from the work programs and such. Things have changed in these houses and he was not placed on the working program but "group meetings". He then asked his PO to either release him from the program or have him entered in a program which he could work and report to parole. As the PO and him do not have the best rapport, my boyfriend decided to leave the program and a warrant was put out for him. He has since then turned himself in and now is charged with VOP severity "f". What will happen to him? his probation is up in August of this year.
He should hire an experienced criminal lawyer to represent him at the hearing. Often judges will give defendant's a second chance and adjourn the VOP case in order for the defendant to come back in compliance with the terms of probation. Since his probation is up in a few months, the case may be adjourned a couple of times, and if he does what he's supposed to do, the court may ultimately release him from probation.
Worst case he finals out in jail in August. Best case he gets an unsatisfactory discharge at the next court hearing. Deciding to leave the program with only a little probation left was a dumb decision.
