Felony probation violation (first offense)
Asked Nov 5, 2007, 11:20 AM
My boyfriend was arrested vop on a felony charge Friday. It was his first violation. He had smoked marij and told his officer as he was being asked for a urine sample. She did not allow him to pee even though he wanted to. She wrote that he refused his test which isn't really true. He just warned her before hand and then wasn't allowed. Is this a true violation if he wasn't allowed to pee. Also, he was held without bond. Can an attorney at this point help him bond out (his hearing is 7 weeks away and was due to start a great new job next week) or is there stiff penalties to vop on a felony charge? What can I expect at this hearing? Will they reinstate the original 5 year sentence or is there a possibility that they might "smack him on the hand?" Should I be optimistic or throw in the towel?
