He's obviously in violation of his parole.  He can be made to serve out his sentence or they may let him stay on probation.  It depends on the circumstances of his case and his probation officer.

Honestly I would have to tell you in most cases such as this a person would have their parole revoked and go to jail.

You should contact the attorney that represented him originally.  He'll be able to give you a better idea of what to expect.
