Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. The arrest alone is a basis for his probation officer to violate him and issue an arrest warrant
and a no bond hold on him. Your son have every legal right to request a violation of probation
hearing and fight the allegation against him. If he did not commit the alleged battery, then he should not take any type of plea deal. Even though the case for the battery charge is set for September, the hearing for the violation of probation would be much sooner. He can admit to it and try and work out a plea or deny it and go to a final hearing. If it turns out that he did not violate, then he would likely be released from jail, assuming there is a bond on him for the battery charge, since there would no longer be a hold. If for some reason the hearing for the violation is not set for a while, then a motion would need to be filed asking that a bond be set or some type of pre-trial release, so he does not have to sit in jail and wait to answer to both the violation and new charge. That is something that would be at the discretion of the Judge. Having him released into your custody is a mitigating factor for the Judge to consider but he/she will want to look at the alleged violation, facts and speak with the State about how they are going to proceed.
