Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My fiance i was arrested February 2nd for probation violation for not communicating with his probation officer his new phone number he has not seen a judge for his probation violation hearing and I know it needs to be done within reasonable time what is considered reasonable time? And is there a way that he can get the probation violation thrown out of court because of it not reasonable time if any of that make sense
JA: Is this a first-time violation? What happened exactly?
Customer: I believe so he was incarcerated for 7 years for drugs he's only been out just over a year he didn't tell him that he needs to do drugs or mental health anyting I got him signed up for that already but it doesn't do us any good when he's sitting in there
JA: Has there been a probation violation hearing?
Customer: He didn't give his probation officer his new phone number so there is a lack of contact she put out at warrants he got pulled over and was arrested for a hold for the Doc
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Not that I can think of I just want to bring him home he does need mental help he tried to commit suicide when he was doing his prison bid and with the covid they're only out a half hour a day that's horrible

First of all, I am very sorry to hear about what your fiancé has been through - now and in the last.

As for your direct question - within a reasonable would be well less than 18 days.  Somewhere between 48-72 hours depends on jurisdiction and day of the week (it could take longer if he was brought in early Saturday morning, for example).  But regardless, this is far too long.

So, what to do about it - you might try (if you haven’t already to call the court/district attorney and bring this issue to their attention.  Of course if you already have to no available then your fall back/his fall back would be to prepare and file a habeas corpus petition with the court.

The harder question to answer for you is will this erase the probation violation.  No it won’t erase it - however, since it was his first issue and he’s had this issue getting before a judge and been locked up for 18 days it is possible that he might be released without additional penalties attached.

Good luck to you both.
