They usually will just extend you for the payments, but not showing up may cause them to just send you to do your time. I would think that, unless the amount of time is extremely short, it will be state jail.


Because you were on a deferred probation on a state jail - it is possible to get a 12.44. The state has to offer it, so your violations and reccomendations from probation will be of great significance.

Proper legal advice can only be given by an attorney who agrees to represent you, who reviews the facts of your specific case, who does not have a conflict of interest preventing the representation, and who is licensed to practice in the appropriate jurisdiction where the legal issue may be filed or in the state where the law applies
