Whatever the terms of his original sentencing that was deferred into probation and program. Read his sentencing order. Parole means felony. Felony means prison time. Youll get your final answer from the decision of the PO, DA, and judge at his hearing.

    If your boyfriend was on Parole, and was ordered to complete a rehabilitation program then he probably would have been given specific dates to show Proof of Progress, and then Proof of Completion (POC).Normally in the State of California, anyone who is sentenced to State Prison is admonished that "you can receive one additional year in prison for each violation of your terms and conditions of Parole."Failing to complete a program could be such a violation, however, you should speak to an experienced Attorney who handles Parole matters, to determine if their are legitimate problems or difficulties your boyfriend may have had in completing any such programs, as may excuse or lessen his potential for any additional punishment from the Courts.
