A: First, a violation report by your PO does not automatically mean that the DA will file an application/motion to revoke your sentence. I suggest you take two actions. First, find your case on OSCN and monitor it to see if an application/motion to revoke is filed. If it is filed, a warrant will likely issue immediately thereafter. You will want to see what the bond amount is associated with the warrant and call a criminal defense attorney who can advise you further and who will likely recommend that you surrender on the warrant (with a bondsman already lined up to post your bond, so you can get right back out).
