    Getting caught while on probation?

    If you are caught with a small amount of marijuana while already on probation for similar charges, what is the maximum sentence you might be charged with? My son has been stopped twice with only small amounts on him, which was obviously just for personal use. I wish he would stop altogether, but I am concerned that he is going to be locked up for a long period of time, due to the charges.

    This varies depending on the state, the previous charges, etc.. You should consult with a criminal law attorney who can advise you of the maximum charges. However, generally speaking, the sentence is usually increased if someone commits a crime while on probation.
