If your son gets his attorney the proof of his jeep breaking down, such as repair receipts, he actually has legal basis to get the judge's order vacated, but without that proof the attorney is correct that the judge COULD sentence him to 6 months still. However, the attorney is giving you the WORST CASE on this and in all likelihood, if your son provides the proof needed to the court and the attorney argues that he could not surrender as ordered by 6PM because he was absolutely unavailable, the court can dismiss the violation based on the classes being completed and bond paid up. His attorney has a case to argue with the court and if your son gets him the evidence of the circumstances, most judges will at least be considerate of that and not violate him, but again his attorney has to tell you the worst because he cannot predict what the judge will do.
