If someone was on probation left the state and is still currently wanted for doing so, what are the chances of intensive probation?

Someone I know was previously on probation for B&E and larceny. The full term for probation was between 2 and 3 years. He followed the rules and did as he should have for 8-10 months. He then left the state (3 years ago) and hasn’t been back since. He is no longer using drugs (sober for almost 2 years) and hasn’t been in any additional trouble since then. What are the chances of him receiving intensive probation rather than having to serve active time? He has 3 children to take care of (one of which is disabled).

If a person was under set rules and conditions for probation and left the state where the probation order was issued, he or she is in violation of the probation.

The end result could result in a significant penalty for the person who violated the terms of his or her probation where the court could revoke the terms of the probation and impose a jail sentence as the result of the violation.

I suggest that the person you are writing about retain a criminal defense attormey to assist him about his probation violation.

Good luck.
