What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Georgia
My boyfriend was arrested for warrants for a probation violation. This is his second violation. He was originally charged with felony possession of marijuana, served 60 days, I believe, and was given 8 years probation. I think they gave him 30 days to serve after his first violation. His probation will be up in 2011, but he hasn't paid probation in almost two years. What is the procedure for this, and how much time can he expect to get this time around? On a side note, not that this has any affect on his sentence, but he was unable to pay this time due to a disability preventing him from working. He was turned down for government disability benefits, but I don't understand why because he lost his left leg about 12 years ago in an accident on the job. This is the only criminal record he has, and I am expecting our second child in July, and I feel that we don't deserve to go through this. Is he just "**** outta luck" on any hopes that he will only serve a short jail term? Thanks for the advice.
