I'm on supervised probation for 2nd degree burglary. I've been on probation about 4 months. I got pulled over of running a light and not having ins. I didn't go to court. I had a warrent for failure to appear for about 8 weeks before I turned myself in and bonded out. I have a violation report filed on casenet I'm assuming a violation probation hearing will be posted. Will I get a warning or my probation revoked?
Are you on probation or parole? This is a crucial question, and you used both terms.
No one can tell you what will happen. We can tell you that a lawyer might be able to help. We can also suggest strongly that failing to appear and being arrested only made the situation worse.
If that is the only violation, traffic tickets, and you cleared the warrant, USUALLY you do not go back to jail for something like that. However, that will depend on how you've done on probation otherwise and your relationship with your PO. I suggest you hire an attorney to start running some interference and get the traffic tickets amended to non point violations. Your PO should tell you where there's a violation pending. Or you will get arrested. I suggest you try to smooth things over with your PO. Tell them you turned yourself in, bonded out, failed to tell them about the arrest but were scared you would get revoked. You've hired an attorney to handle the tickets, etc. Hopefully that will help.
