A: It depends. Did you ever go back to court? If there is a warrant out for your arrest, you will need to first clear that warrant. You will then need to convince a Judge that you are now prepared to finish the classes. This will constitute a violation of your probation. You need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to negotiate the terms of your sentence on the probation violation. You are looking at up to a year in the county jail if you do not handle this correctly.
