    Matthew’s Answer

    Jail is certainly a possibility for a probation revocation. There are options short of jail such as extending the probation, adding community service hours, or sending you to treatment. In general, if you have stayed out of troulbe and showed an effort on the probation, a local lawyer should be able to get you to a place you can live with. On the other hand, sometimes a short jail sentence is worth doing to get off of probation.
