Cayley Turrin answered on Jul 3, 2020

The problem with a handling a case without a lawyer is that anything you say to the DA can be used against you. Pro se defendants don't usually think they are saying anything incriminating until it is used against them in the future.

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
Cayley Turrin
Cayley Turrin answered on May 26, 2020

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.
