My son's father spent 2 years in DOC for a meth charge. He got out in March of this year and has been arrested again this week on the same thing. I am trying to find out if it's a possibility that he will get time in DOC again.

Ask his attorney or the prosecutor / District Attorney / City Attorney...... We just arrest them.  It is up to them and the courts to impose jail time or not....... and please tell me that you are not with this guy anymore.

 Don't take it too literally, FL MOM. We LEOs tend to be direct and to the point. No insult intended. We just get to it. We have no idea what the court will impose on him. His sentence will be determined by the judge. We don't make the laws - we just enforce them. Sure, we can give you a guide, but sometimes we even get surprised when a judge passes the sentence. As far as your question, ask the lawyer. But, keep in mind that he won't know what the judge will do, either. After all, none of us can get in the judge's head.

If he's done time for the same crime he just committed, my un-educated guess would be he's going back to the pokey. Maybe for a longer stint this time. After all, he didn't learn the first time. BUT, as previously stated; that would be entirely up to the Judge.


When he was released, was he on any community control? If so, what were the the terms of his control (probation/parole,ect).

 Thank you BigNTS. I'm just hoping for my son's sake they and him back to DOC. 36TR he was free and clear when he got out.

You might want to double check on the 'free and clear' status. Most inmates are paroled with certain conditions for a specific amount of time.


If he was in custody for 2 years, then he was serving a sentence for a felony (methamphetamine). I am assuming your reference to 'DOC' is 'Department of Corrections'. These are prison institutions and not the same as a jail environment.

Hey FlMom, I'm a parole officer in a nearby state. It is highly unlikely your ex "flat timed" out of Fl DOC. If he was on parole at the time he committed this new offense, he should have a detainer filed by his p.o. preventing him from bonding out. Call your local parole office and ask to speak to his officer. That way you will know for sure if he is on supervision. If he were one of my cases he would have the oportunity to waive or defer a final hearing before my parole board. If he waived, he would go back to prison and complete his time. If he deferred, he would remain in the local jail until this pending charge has been disposed (gone to trial). If he beat the charge, my parole board would let him out, if he lost his trial, he would have his time run consecutive to the new conviction.


Like I said, call your local office and ask to speak to his officer, then you will know if he is on parole or not.
