A: I am sorry to hear of the alleged violation. You are still on probation until your probation term has ended or has been revoked for violations a new sentence imposed. Any failure to comply with your probation terms during this time could result in additional evidence to revoke your probation. Unless already satisfied, there is likely a warrant for your arrest. If arrested, you will be held without a bond until your hearing or until an attorney assists with getting a bond reinstated.
