Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
First, if he is on probation still, I am afraid this is going to be considered a probation violation and the court
can revoke his probation on the first charge and send him to jail on that charge.
Second, this charge is a misdemeanor
punishable by a MINIMUM of 6 months in jail and not more than 1 year in jail. He also faces a minimum fine $1000 and a maximum fine of $10,000. If this is his first offense even, you can see it is serious even with the minimum penalties imposed (which they usually are a minimum for a first offense).
He ABSOLUTELY needs to get a public defender immediately to try to help him for both the probation violation and the evading charge, because on an evading charge there is little room to work with and the most his attorney may do is get a reduction to careless or reckless operation which does not have the severe minimum penalties.
