My son is on probation for possession of marijuana and he had two negative tests and had to spend weekend in jail? Now he has been arrested for DWI, evading arrest, and reckless driving. Are they going to automatically revoke his probation and send him to jail?
The court will have to have a hearing in order to revoke your son’s probation, but the facts you present give the district attorney plenty of reasons to do so. Your son needs to hire the best criminal defense attorney that he can afford.
A motion to revoke probation will be filed, but no one can predict the ultimate outcome of your son's cases. Start calling local lawyers. Good .luck.
The State will file a Motion to Revoke or Adjudicate his probation. A warrant will be issued for his arrest and at some point after he is arrested there will be a hearing on whether or not to revoke his probation.
