A: No one here can tell you what amount of time, if any. Technical violations (changing address, not paying monthly costs of supervision) are less severe than picking up a new charge or failing to report/absconding, He's facing a max of 15 years or so on a VOP. He needs a lawyer to arrange a surrender and a negotiated plea.
