What length sentence can my boyfriend expect for a probation violation?

My boyfriend is on probation and he only had a month to go till he was off, he got pulled over at a check point and was arrested for some new charges; this was back in 2/2015 so its been a year now he got time served on all charges in November 2015. He's still in jail on a probation hold not sure if hes gotta back up his 10 years or not. How long does it take to find out if hes gonna do time? Or do you think there's a possibility of being released since he got time served on all the charges?

The problem we see in this situation is that your boyfriend is still incarcerated "after the time service". This tends to tell us that there is a re-sentencing hearing on the way for the old charge he was in violation of. This is problematic because the original sentencing judge will be making the new determination. This is usually not good because they view it like the offender didn't take the leniency to heart and normally will impose the original sentence. If it was a ten year sentence, he might be looking at that.
