A: Any violation of probation can result in the court sentencing him to jail for the time that he has remaining on his probation. The probation officer can also ask the court or recommend to the court that he gets a pass and can continue on probation. Whatever decision made is up to his probation officer and the Judge that originally sentenced him. You should seek the assistance of an attorney for the best possible outcome.
