A: Technically, you can receive supervision twice within 12 months. He would need to appear in court on the second to receive supervision again - it as at the discretion of the judge. An attorney may be able to assist.

A: He should request Supervision on both of them, but he will likely have to appear in court in order to receive Court Supervision. If you are still confused, you could always hire an attorney to assist him with this matter.
