My fiance was probation in Wagoner and Tulsa County. He was rearresred in December for a new charge in Coweta. As such, both Wagoner and Tulsa charges him with a violation of probation while he was sitting in Wagoner County under the Costa charge. Gratefully, he was placed back under probation in Wagoner County in their Mental Health Courts, then was released - he was not transferred to Tulsa. Tulsa tried arresting him while he was not home for the probation violation. If arrested, will he receive a NEW probation violation charge in Wagoner, even though Tulsa is apprehending him on the same charges he was already sentenced for in Coweta (Wagoner)? Should he turn himself in to Tulsa immediately, or should he seek legal counsel to avoid the arrest?
He needs to hire an attorney. He will have to surrender on the warrant. A surrender will look better when asking the court to continue his probation. Since Wagoner County was willing to let him into Mental Health Court, he might be able to get accepted into Tulsa's Mental Health court and transfer it to Wagoner County.
