Good morning. Do you know what action the court took? Was the treatment a condition to his probation and therefore he violated? Is there a warrant for his arrest?

I don't know how can I find out
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 10 months ago

Thank you for the reply and great to hear back from you. If he failed to complete a condition to his sentence and left the center, he would be in violation of his probation, which is likely what he was on and/or in violation of a court order, which would result in a warrant being issued. In a situation like this, a motion would need to be filed to lift the warrant and set a hearing on this, so he could appear to answer to the violation/issue and see how it can be resolved. It is unlikely that after 12 years they will allow him to go to treatment again, so they may want jail time, to close this out.

Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 10 months ago

If that is the case, a motion would need to be filed asking the Judge to set this for hearing and allow himself to appear and turn himself in in open court and possible resolve this then.
