No one can tell you for sure, there are too many variables and facts that are unknown. However if he is on probation for a felony, and has multiple prior offenses and then picks up a new felony offense that involves the risk of death to a child, well prison is in the ballpark.
If you love him get him a good attorney. If you don’t well he is in the hands of fate.Ask a similar question
The family violence case is probably a third degree which means if revoked (on a deferred) he can get from 2 to 10 years in prison. DUI (which is probably DWI) is either a Class B misdemeanor or if there was a breath test of .15 or higher, a class A. If probation is revoked on those, he can get the maximum time for the level (which is 6 months for a class B or 1 year for a Class A). DWI with child passenger under 15 is a state jail felony which means 6 months to 2 years in state jail. His driving facts aggravate the case and it is not likely he will get a low offer.
Chances are, he is looking at time. He needs an excellent lawyer.
Wow. He is in a LOT of trouble. Luckily his new charge is the lowest level felony (state jail) unless his punishment level is enhanced with a prior felony. This makes his maximum punishment on the new case 2 years in the state jail, which is essentially day-for-day although a small amount of good-time credit may be available. I cannot tell you his maximum punishment on the probation violation, because I don't know what level of family violence assault he is on probation for. Everyone should consider themselves lucky that the child wasn't seriously injured.
