My husband is in jail as well for probation violation, that is what the police told me after he was arrested. When it came to his court date, there was a new charge on him called absconding. He has to serve I do not know right now how much time. But his attorney wants to try and get shock probation. I say finish out his sentence then he will be free. What gets me through all of this is that I was tols that if I paid off his ristatution he would not get any time. His probation officer told me that, now he is in jail serving all his time. Can he get shock probation? I do not want to use my health problems for shock probation.
