But first, please tell me whether he was on probation or parole in Utah when he left the state.

Expert:  Zoey_ JD replied 9 months ago.

Basically, if the defendant absconded from Utah while on parole or probation, if he is brought back involuntarily, he faces incarceration for the remainder of his sentence on parole, or the full prison alternative on probation.

That's the worst case scenario, of course. The parolee or probationer would be afforded a hearing with a lawyer, and depending upon all of the facts and circumstances, he might be able to do less time.
