try to simplify this best as possible. we live in florida, the state where he was in trouble was georgia. they knew we lived in florida, the court case had drug on for a year and a half and they knew all that time we had moved back. anyway, when it was finally acquitted or whatever the term is when the judge makes a decision, it was on november first. he got sentenced to probation. do not want to say how many years, it's a lot. anyway, his lawyer said he wanted to ask for georgia probation, because it's cheaper, and he might be able to check in on the phone or go up so many times per year. but he didn't want to ask the judge for any more favors, what he granted my husband with was favor enough. so we left alone florida probation. again, knowledge of where we were living. he was told to *wait* til he hears something.
today, his mom received a phone call from an officer that they can't find my husband, have sent people to his mom's house (that's the address they had on file, he hasnt' switched it to our address yet) and nobody answers (obviously people work during the day). neither me, hubby, his mom, no one has received a call looking for him. no letters, noone sent to his job. NOTHING. he was apparently suppose to check in on the 9th. he had NO knowledge of this. he is now down at the probation office and i am scared to death he's going to jail now for a mistake HE HAD NO CONTROL OVER! do you think that with a thorough explanation, they will understand and just slap him on the wrist? this was not his fault! he even called one day, left a message and nobody called back!
to make it more ironic, tonight is his grandfather's wake and tomorrow is the funeral. he will just crumble if he is unable to make it! please someone tell me im freaking out for nothing. and if they do put him in jail, can we fight it since he did nothing wrong?

I would say depending what the original charge was, he will be arrested. If this is his first offence they will probably let him go. If they do, I would be making plans to move back to Georgia.
