Springfield, TN asked in Criminal Law for Tennessee

Q: How hard is it to fight and beat a language after the violation? My fiancé' signed one and it was for 3 years he'd serv

His main probation is in the boro but had it transferred to Springfield, Tn. When he went to jail a year or so ago he signed a language. When he signed it was supposed to be 3 years to serve if any violations to the terms. Well, he got caught driving on a suspended license. My niece 18 and our baby was in the car. He got scared and ran and left them in the car.He also got child neglect. The reason for the stop was because my registration was suspended. we had no idea the papers about that was sent to my old address. No insurance I'm sure evading and now it would be a VOP on top of it all. He really is a good man that had a terrible past. He is now an amazing father and would do anything for his child. He ran because he was afraid that he was going to do 3 years away from her and I. He is willing to turn himself in. We wanted a lawyer on our side to fight and have our ducks in a row. What do you think our chances in court. Any advice I would be more than grateful!! Please help!!

A: Your husband would probably be well-served to hire a criminal defense lawyer. A violation of probation can mean the judge can reinstate the entire original sentence.
