    Hello r:

    I don't know what a capias violation is, especially since you say he's been doing so well... If it was just a minor thing, or a technical violation they wouldn't have arrested him. Since they did, he's probably looking at some slam time.

    That would be, of course, unless this capias thing is BOGUS. If so, a lawyer wouldn't hurt at all.

    However, if the felony you mention is what he did to violate, then he's going to need a lawyer for sure.

    I would say that he is going back to prison for a longer time, judges do not like to keep seeing the same person back again and again.

    If he was doing so well why did he violate ?
