When you say OR do you mean ROR? released on your own recognizance?
By missing meeting with your probation officer, you are at least in technical violation of your probation. You said you turned yourself in, so I assume the probation office already filed for the warrant and petition to revoke your probation. You need to have an attorney negotiate your cases. If the petition for violation of probation granted and your suspended sentence is revoked, you have to serve the 11 months and 29 days less any jail credits you signed up for. The judge has the discretion of reducing the sentence.
