Provencal Law

My son is 3 months into a 6 month probation for a first time DUI, and was just jailed for domestic violence.
He and his girlfriend were arguing over a phone and she tried to rush at him and take it away from him. He grabbed her and held her back; and then asked her to leave. She called the police and said he tried to choke her to death. They were both arrested, but the judge denied his bail and is holding him for a probation revocation hearing in two weeks. Does he need a lawyer? She is now recanting her story and saying that she called the police out of anger and hates she did it. What can we do? A court appointed attorney handled the DUI, can he do anything? He says his probation officer told him to plead guilty to this. Is that right? He's up to date on his probation requirements and has never been in trouble before.Thanks in advance. I just want to do what ever I can to help him.
