A: Whether or not your boyfriend gets a bail is going to be based on a number of factors including the issues surrounding the probation revocation. If he got a new charge and that caused the revocation, it is less likely that he will receive bail. However, if it was a technical violation (like he failed to report or missed a fine payment), it may be more likely. All of this is really up to the judge (and depending on the court the probation officer).
