How long could someone be in jail for federal probation violation? 1 Answers as of February 08, 2017

This person caught a case six years ago, no prior criminal history. Never served time or was sentenced. He was put on federal probation, never violated until now six years later. He got pulled over for suspicion of DUI. Did not serve any time for that. But he did not leave a detailed enough voice mail to his PO about what happened. He brought proof that he called and doctors notes that he's been really sick to his court date and they still took him into custody. He's on a federal hold as of now. No bail. It's been about two weeks and a half. What are his chances of fighting this and getting out soon? He still has not been given a court date. Is there any way possible he may get another chance and not revoke his probation? Please help.

He could be sentenced to the original jail term, which I am assuming was suspended at the time of his sentencing. Your friend needs an experienced federal criminal defense attorney to help him with this situation.
