Your son will be transported to Lee County, to answer to the charges against him. If his criminal cases are in Lee County, he will have to go before the Judge presiding over his original charges. There most likely will not be a bond placed on your son, because he was on probation at the time he picked up the new charge. This is commonly called a no-bond hold. He will have to remain in custody, until both the new charge and the violation of probation are resolved. He can still obtain counsel while in jail, the attorney will have to speak with him over the phone or in person, if they wish to visit the jail. If no bond is set, he needs to wait until his case is set in front of a Judge or if your hire an attorney, they can possible speed up the process, by getting it heard sooner. If he picked up a new charge in Polk County, he will have to resolve that case, before being transported to Lee County.
Do you know what your son failed to appear for? If it was for a court case, there had to be a new charge or was it a follow up to his probation because he had to comply with a court order? You should call a bail bond company directly. They will have easier access to the jail system and can provide you with more information about posting a bond on your son.
