Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Are you saying that you violated probation 8 years ago and that violation is still outstanding? That is, there's a warrant out on you for a violation of probation?
I am not sure what you're trying to tell me. Are you saying you have a violation of probation that you never took care of 8 years ago?
I'm not going to be able to tell you what you want to hear. There is no statute of limitations on a violation of probation. It will be out there forever, until you return to court to address it or for the rest of your life, whichever comes first.
Worse yet, when you took your plea to probation, you were told that your failure to comply with probations rules and regulations could result in your being revoked from probation and could get you resentenced to any sentence lawful for the crime to which you pled guilty.
More information coming. I'm still typing.
There is only one way to cure this problem, and that's to hire a lawyer and come back before the judge on the violation. Before you come back to court a lawyer can see if he can negotiate some other non-incarceratory sentence, because probation is no longer going to want you, and the judge could sentence you to prison.
If he can't put something together for you, he can tell you
