I am looking for some answers to some state jail felony questions.....my stepson was giving the choice of 2 years state jail time or 5 years probation with deferred adjudication. He took the probation and of course, violated it within 10 months. He is currently in Ellis County waiting a court date. His attorney has told us that he would get credit for time served as long as he isn't bonded out and that he would get the whole 2 years from the original sentence.
I am wondering if time is day for day for a state jail felony or can he recieve good time?
Thanks and God bless!!!!
So sorry frogfan unfortunately state jail does not give good time But there is a bright side... My husband was offered the same thing 5 years probation or 2 years state jail & he took the probation & he violated a few months later. When he went back to court the judge only gave him 1 year. So there is hope!!! Hope that helps. I wish the best for you & your stepson. Good luck!!
