Nothing. Once he pled guilty, the only issue for a probation violation is whether or not he violated probation - not whether or not he was guilty of the assault. He needs a good lawyer. If he was charged as a first offender misdemeanor, he is looking at up to 1 year in jail and up to a $4,000 fine. What will happen depends on the underlying facts of the case, the violation, how he did otherwise on probation, his attitude, etc.
