A: Your underlying attorney should be able to answer this for you and it depends on the charge that you have AND what the probation violations are for. If you don't have an attorney GET ONE. An experienced criminal defense attorney can get you the answers that you seek so that you can have peace of mind understanding that it may mean you are facing jail time/fines/both or other sanctions. Good Luck
