If you are on probation and your probation officer believes you have violated your terms of probation, they can and will ask the state to file a motion to revoke that probation. This is essentially asking the court to remove you from probation and sentence you to jail or even prison. This usually leads to an arrest warrant being issued and you being thrown back into jail awaiting a resolution to this motion to revoke.
This can be extremely stressful as it can feel like a repeat of something you have already gone through on your original charges, and it is similar in a lot of ways. The main difference is that you no longer have a right to a jury trial, but only a hearing before the judge and the alleged violations has nothing to do with the original charge. The hearing is solely based on what you did or didn’t do while on probation. The consequences of a violation of probation can be anywhere from time served to life in prison.
