Q: I didn't go to probation when I got out of jail 02/14/2020. What's my best outcome? Is rehab an option to avoid jail? TN

You need to first find out if there is a warrant for your arrest and if so what the bond amount is to bond out. Once you bond out you should get an attorney to explore an option of rehab or possibly just reinstating your probation to a new term.

It does sound like the police should not have taken your phone. Were charges filed? If so, that phone may be in evidence. If not, I would contact the police department and ask to get it back.
