Q: My boyfriend was arrested on a warrant stating probation violation from his dui last year but he paid his fines no po
He never had a po or anything so how is it a probation violation
A: He was probably supposed to go meet with a probation officer. Not doing so, may well be the violation. But, really, how can we know based on your question. They will have to tell him what the alleged violation is. My guess is he was supposed to go set up regular appointments with them and never did.
Douglas A. Ball agrees with this answer
A: You should refer back to his original sentencing information or have an attorney review it to determine what the Court ordered as to the conditions of his probation. You might also contact the Probation Department to clarify what conditions were ordered. Also, the OVI/DUI laws changed in 2017. Did he have any other DUIs than the one you referenced? You should definitely have him contact an attorney in the area where he was convicted. Many attorneys offer a free initial consultation that may be of value to you. I wish you all of the best in the future.
