Q: Need urgent help
I got my 2nd violation of probation the 1st time I got to do outpatient program and got on methadone. I was violated due to missing appointment's the 1st time and it just got reinstated. This time I got arrested 2 different times. The 1st offense was larceny in the 6th degree and burglary in 3rd degree. The 2nd arrest was breach of peace. I have a VOP warrant out with a 10,000 bond then those 2 new cases I go to court 2/26/21. I currently am in a recovery house. I came here from detox which I was at for 5 days. I am going to a 30 day then roughly a 6 month program when there is a bed available. I was intoxicated with both new arrests. I was on probation for assault 2nd with a motor vehicle and DUI. I plan on dealing with all this after I finish my programs. Should I do that or turn myself in then go to programs after I bond out and do you think if I do the programs will the judge take it easier on me. THANKS
A: You should clear the outstanding arrest warrants by turning yourself in, then bond out, hire a criminal defense attorney and enter the program. Otherwise, you may find yourself arrested while your in the program. Best of luck
