Yes he needs an attorney. If the urine screen is proven, then he will likely face jail or prison. On the other hand, an attorney may be able to prove that the urine screen is not valid and therefore get the VOP dismissed.

I agree with the previous attorney that you should hire an attorney.

As this is a felony he would be facing up to 5 years in Florida state prison (for a 3rd degree felony, could be higher if original felony is a 2nd or 1st degree)

In order to give you better information about what will happen I will need some more info about his case.

I handle criminal cases in Dade county and would be more than happy to speak with you further about the case.

Best of luck,

-Leland
