Default Freaking out here, PLEASE help!

My boyfriend is in bucks county he was at work release but i get a call this morning and he has been sent back over to the jail. he is due out in June his celly said he hit him the guy had one scabbed over cut on his nose and trust me if my man hit him he would not have been able to run to the guards so my question is this. what now? he said he can call witnesses but he put in papers for his parole will it affect that? do they take pix of this guys so called injuries? will he need a lawyer? what can i do from here? im freaking out in case you haven't sensed that yet lol im counting on the friends i have made here for some of the great advice that has helped me through this time
Thank you so much

He has probably received a charge and will be seen in court line [prisoner's term for a "disciplinary hearing"]. This process may work differently because he's in a county jail. The court line mediator will determine if he is guilty of the charge, or not. If he is, he will receive some kind of punishment/restrictions [again, this varies from jail to jail]. He should be able to call witnesses but no lawyers are typically allowed and if they are, the jailers do not look favorably on this happening. This is an internal procedure. If he is found guilty, is is very likely to impact his parole eligibility and approval.
Sorry I could not give you more positive news; but most find it is better to know the real deal and come to terms w/the possibilities of this situation.

TO answer a couple questions ...

Yes, they probably took pictures of the alleged wound. The do that to cover themselves in case the injured inmate tries to file suit against the prison.

Yes, if he's cleared of any wrongdoing, he should be returned to his prior status. If he's found guilty, as egs said, he'll likely lose his work-release and have to deal with this at parole time. Fortunately, county inmates are paroled by their sentencing judge, who is less influenced by the prison problems than the state parole board is.

Please also be aware that they can file charges in court for a fight within the prison. My niece's ex picked up 5 charges after a fight. Fights are not always handled internally only.

And, on the other hand, this doesn't sound like a major brawl with serious injuries as a result. Fights in jail are common and most are handled as internal issues. In this case, they don't seem to have witnesses -- especially staff witnesses -- so they aren't likely to pursue an oath vs. oath case.
