Probation Violation Received All of His Credit


Case: Dan's client was placed on probation for lewd and lascivious conduct.  The client transferred his probation to a different state.  While on probation, the Defendant was arrested and convicted of home invasion robbery. After serving his sentence, the client was extradited to Florida for the violation of probation.  The issue in this case was whether the client should receive credit for the time he spent in custody to apply to his probation violation sentence.  Dan successfully got his client two years of credit applied to his probationary sentence, because the client was served with the violation of probation warrant while in custody.
