    Answered . You should consult an attorney. In similar situations in my practice, the probation officer will send a violation report to the prosecutor. The prosecutor then determines, along with assistance from the probation department, whether to file a motion to revoke probation. Your attorney may be able to speak with the prosecutor and determine whether a motion to revoke your probation will be filed. If a motion is filed, then you would be entitled to a hearing to determine whether your probation will be revoked.

    Contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to discuss your options.

    Answered . Where you are supervised matters less than where you are on probation from. Harris County will decide whether to have a warrant issued. You need an experienced probation lawyer.

    Answered . Be prepared to show your commitment to sobriety. Go above and beyond what is required and be able to prove it. Doe 90 meetings in 90 days. Whatever it takes to stay out of jail and/or prison.

    Answered . YIKES!! You are in a very tough court, and apparently you have already been given one chance. You MUST hire a lawyer, and you need to get ready for some time in a lock down (again) or possibly prison. Judge Brown does not play.
