Will a revoked misdemeanor probation affect a concurrent felony probation?

My son violated his special condition of no contact on his misdemeanor probation. He was sentenced to 120 days, which he has 80 left to serve. It was just a technical violation. The issue is he is on felony probation that is running concurrent with this misdemeanor. How does his misdemeanor violate his felony probation? My son is worried he will get even more time due to felony if revoked.

Good question. To answer your question, you will need to carefully read the terms and conditions of the two probations that your son has with respect to the misdemeanor and the felony convictions. The terms of these two probations set forth what he can and cannot do.

Potentially the terms of the probation apply equally to the misdemeanor and felony convictions and the violation of one where an additional 120 days were tacked onto his sentence may be the total end result.

I suggest that he consult with a criminal defense attorney to further consult with and go over the terms of his probation.

Good luck.
