My question involves criminal law for the state of: Florida
At the beginning of 2009 my husband got put on five years probation for a robbery charge. He just recently changed his address and the police showed up to violate him for not having an address, but it turned out his probation officer forgot to make a note of the new address however, when the police showed up at his new address to violated him, they walked in on him with a marijuana grinder in his hand, and weed in his lap. they then searched him and found an empty baggy in his pocket, they scraped the bag and it tested positive for meth. they gave him a drug test and he passed it. They are now charging him with Marijuana possession not more than 20 grams, drug equipment, and possession of controlled substance without a prescription. The controlled substance charge is his only felony, and an investigator has told him that they could possibly get that dropped to misdeminer also. My question is with his new law violation will he be going to prison, and if so any estimates on how long? If they can drop the felony to a misdeminer, will that help him out any? also, is there anything that can be done about his probation officer's mistake about the address that can help his case any?
