I haven't posted anything for a long time. I frequently read posts from others, and really take comfort from those on this forum. I'm sure my story will sound familiar. I've tried most everything in my power to help my son. I ended up paying an awesome attorney a lot of money to defend him against 1 count of robbery, 1 count of attempted robbery, and 2 counts of use of a firearm in a felony. The Commonwealth was trying to give him 8 years, and the attorney got it reduced to possession of ammunition by a convicted felon. He was sentenced to 1 year for this, and got out of jail after serving 10 months. Well, my life turned into a nightmare when he was released. He went back to carrying a gun, was selling marijuana, and punched multiple holes in my walls due to drinking and fighting with his girlfriend. Last Thursday, he was arrested again for possession of ammunition by a felon. He and his friends were stopped by police due to a tail light being out and the police searched the car because they said they smelled weed. No drugs were found, but when my son was sitting on the ground the police said they found 3 bullets that fell out of his pockets. They arrested him and charged him for the ammunition. He already has 3 probation violations that he is scheduled to go to court for. His public defender came to see him today, and told him he was going to try to get him a bond hearing next week when he goes to court for the probation violations. I am hoping the judge will deny the bond and give him the mandatory time of at least 2 years and denies his bond. At the rate he was going, he is much safer in jail than out. I know there are those on here with a lot of legal knowledge. Is it really a possibility a judge would let him out on bond when he's violated probation 3 times?
