I am sorry to hear about this situation. Truth be told, even if he was not involved with the drug activity, he arguably violated the probation requirements by being around other felons. So someone on his situation arguably violated probation.
He was offered to sign a waiver of revocation, it sounds like. Via a waiver, he would admit to the violation and waive the right to a hearing in return for a deal with the PO/prosecutor. He did not have to sign it. Since he did not, then the PO/prosecutor are pressing to have the violation heard before the Court, which can:
-decide there was no violation
-violate him and imprison him
-violate him and imprison him shortly but then let him out back on probation, and/or
-extend the probation and have further requirements.
An attorney is not going to be able to speed up the court date, I am afraid, since this is set by the Court according to how full the docket is.
Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved for experts who are rude or for erroneous information. Please rate me on the quality of my information; do not punish me for my honesty.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
