A: Since a Petition to Revoke was filed, I am going to assume that you paid the fine late or did not do something you were supposed to do on time. First, you should contact the attorney that assisted you with this matter. If you did not have an attorney, you should hire one to assist you with the Petition to Revoke. The sooner you contact an attorney, the better.

A: It is possible that the Supervision was revoked by the fine not being paid on time. I suggest you either call or go online with the courthouse you attended and see if the Supervsion was revoked and a conviction/Conditional discharge entered. If so, you have to return to court and ask the Judge to reinstate your Supervison. If a conviction was entered it will be put on your driving record and depending have many tickets you already have on your record may lead to a suspension
