Thats up to the judge and prosecutor when they charge him with the probation violation. They can revoke his probation, and restore the sentence that he originally pled to. If he is serious about hiring counsel to help in this, and if this is in SoCal courts, feel free to contact me.

He could be sentenced up to the maximum punishment of his original crime. However, depending on the severity of the violation, the Judge may just reinstate his probation terms.

    Hard to say. Depends on the nature of the underlying offense, his record, and how much time was hanging over his head. The good news is that not attending school is probably the least serious violation he could commit. His attorney should help him get back on track and hopefully this will not be a major problem and he can avoid custody.

    Locked up? Was it his first DUI? Has he paid all fines? Depending on the judge, he may be able to get an extension. Which court and county is this case out of?
