Possession of a controlled substance while out on bond and probation - will he get bond?

HI I have a question my husband is currently in jail. He was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana but he was out on bond and on probation. He recently went to court for the possession case and my question is does he still have to go to court for the marijuana charge?

The problem is the probation violation. Bond will be denied and they will have to answer for the new charges. He will have to face the magistrate and deal with whatever the charge or indictment is from the arresting officer/agency. Probation violation is a slippery slope because the offender must eventually face the original sentencing judge - they do not like seeing someone come back after they have been given a change at redemption with an early release.
