The answer to your question is absolutely! Just because it's your first issue while on probation doesn't mean it's not serious. Probation's no joke. Judges expect people on probation to do what's required in the sentence or they face punishment. The sentencing judge will not be happy to see you in court for any alleged violation, trust me. Good luck!
The information I've provided was general in nature and should not be relied upon in your particular situation. Much more detailed information is required before I can provide you with my advice on how, exactly, you should proceed. My responding to your inquiry does not constitute, in any way, an attorney-client agreement or relationship. Asking me follow-up questions doesn't guarantee a response will be provided by me.
Yes you can be sentenced to jail time on your first probation violation, especially if its a felony charge. Consult with an attorney....don't go and try and handle this alone.
