Five Days

Five days. That's how long a recent client took to get picked up for the same offense as the one to which I pled him. In the grand scheme of things, it was a piddly case, and the DA wanted to get rid of the case, too, so we were able to make everyone happy. Unfortunately, the DA got his butt chewed for giving my guy the deal he got. Luckily, he's got prior military service, so he won't be scarred by this butt-chewing, and won't be as shy with pleas in the future as he would be if he hadn't already been yelled at by the best (Well, second-best; he was Army)
It's frustrating that my future clients are going to have their option list shortened by what a past client has done. He'll get his payback; he signed on to longer probation than he would have done in prison, so now he'll have longer prison time from messing up. (In addition to the new charge) But my other clients are less likely to get a chance at the 'more rope to hang myself with' deal whether they're likely to succeed at it or not.

However, five days still isn't my record for shortest release-to-recommit time:
7 hours, 22 minutes.
Beat that.

I am not sure he should have to serve the full time in prison if he was given a longer term of probation than normally is given for that type of offense. Maybe some kind of split sentence or maybe a combined sentence with the new case and taking into account that he was given a longer term of probation than normal ---- if it was expected that he was going to violate the probation or that he probably would not make it through the whole term of probation because --- for instance he is an addict --- then he was set up for failure from the get go.....

Four hours. This was a client released on a bail review, and one of his conditions was that he leave the jurisdiction as soon as practicable to go back to his family residence (a community several hundred miles to the north). A little later in the day, one of the complainants in the case spotted him in this jurisdiction, freaked out, and telephoned the police, who then picked him up on a residency breach.

Follow up: The charge was BS because the flight he was scheduled to take was cancelled for weather reasons (hence, not "practicable") and he was rescheduled for the next day. The prosecutor in this case, a reasonable man, immediately withdrew the charge once he discovered this, and the client was released. He has not since reoffended, and as of today remains free on bail.

Interesting parallel to your case, because the prosecutor in this case also got HIS butt chewed out for being so reasonable with my client. The Queen Bee of the prosecutors here in town wanted to revoke his bail on a bogus claim that he never intended to leave town.
