I took 3 yr felony probation with a condition of drug court as a plea on a prostitution third offense charge. If I opt out of drug court I will be violating my probation. I have done 9 months on this charge 6 of those months were in work release. So will the time served count towards my violaton charge or what are my options?
Any time previously served in jail will be credited towards any new sentence imposed upon a revocation of probation. If you have already done nine months, chances are a good attorney could resolve your case with time served.
From what you wrote, the answer is yes.
However you can get 5 years in prison where you would serve 4 years 3 months less credit for time served.
