Okay. He has essentially done what the legal system calls "absconded".
There is no length of time where a warrant for a probation violation ends. It sounds as if it was a misdemeanor
. That means he will not be extradited from another state. His only danger of arrest would be going back to Florida.
If he wants to get this resolved he is going to have to hire a lawyer in Florida, present himself to the court
, get booked, and obtain a court date to deal with the violation. It's possible if he has otherwise stayed out of trouble, had work, and been otherwise responsible he will not serve any jail time. However, having been gone for 7 years is not a good thing no matter how you look at it.
The first step here would be retaining a local defense lawyer in Brevard County to arrange for his surrender and a bond so he can remain outside of custody while the violation is dealt with.
