but since my arrest all my violations i have not faulted on since then & i took care of all the mishaps. PLEASE ADVISE!!!
Probation is considered an alternative to incarceration. Some NY counties still have an ATI office. In any event, the possibility is very real. You might also be "revoked and restored." That is, your current term would be revoked, and you would then be restored to Probation for the original term and for the time you have been in violation.
Speak to your PO and see what you can do to improve your situation. You should also speak to your attorney. He or she will be able to advise you on what you should do to minimize your exposure.
You could. For the most part, probation will give you a chance. If the violation includes drugs, as yours does, follow up drug counseling will most likely be required. I would agree, with the first two posts, it would be well worth getting an attorney that understands your situation.
