  1. The amount of incarceration one can face for a probation violation will vary as it is usually based on whatever the statutory maximum sentence was for the offense for which you were on probation for in the first place. For example if you were on probation for a ten year felony than you are facing a sentence of up to ten years on the probation violation. If you do not have a lawyer either request that the court appoint one for you, or retain one to represent you.
