Have a question on how probation works and sorry for the long post.
My younger brother in 2003 was put on 1 year probation from Cook County Court, IL for a drug charge.
He moved to Georgia right after that and never notified the probations officer so he has an arrest warrant for this.
He's been a financial burden since this!
Fast forward to present.
He went back to IL to turn himself in since it was getting harder and harder for him to get a job. He did go back to Chicago but never turned himself in, keep begging money from me. I finally cut him of last weekend and told him to turn himself in as planned (I paid his way from Vegas to Chicago so he could do this months ago).
He called today and said that he turned himself in on 29 Oct 07 and said they let him out on an I Bond for court next month.
I think he is lying to me since he was already convicted of his crime but put on probation.
Now, since he has violated that I think he would have to spend a year in jail instead of getting put out on a I Bond.
Is he lying or can he get out on an I Bond for this.
Thanks in advance.
