Default On Probation in Barrow Co, in jail elsewhere

I have a friend who's been in county jail for several months in North Georgia. He was on probation in Barrow County (not the county he's currently in jail in) when he was arrested.

He wants to know, if he bails/bonds out of his current jail, does Barrow County always have probation violators do their full punishment as jail time in Barrow, or might his current time in jail count toward his punishment? How often does one (always going to jail in Barrow) or the other (current jail time elsewhere count toward punishment) happen for Barrow County probation violation?

So, he's violated his probation with a new charge in a new county? Even if he bonds out, he could immediately be transferred to Barrow for the violation. The best thing that you can do, is call his officer. They are going to be the one making the recommendation, but "typically" any time that he's incarcerated should count toward something? Hope this helps.

Yes, as I understand it, being arrested is a violation.

Yes, that's our understanding. He's closer to friends who can help now as opposed to being in Barrow, and he'll be less concerned about bailing out if he's pretty sure he doesn't have to also spend a lot of time in Barrow County jail. From your response and the text I got from his wife yesterday, it looks promising (but of course NOT a sure thing) that he won't. She talked to his PO who said "Usually time served in one facility will go toward your total time served. They can't hold you in jail without letting it apply to one charge or the other." [he's working to get his current charges dismissed]
