Jail time is certainly possible. You should have the matter reviewed by an attorney as soon as possible. Often, with experienced representation, adverse consequences can be avoided.

It is best to contact a DWI attorney in your area to discuss. They will be in a better position to assist. Good luck.
This is not intended as legal advice. No attorney / client relationship exists because of this response.
I recommend hiring a DWI attorney to help you minimize the consequences of this violation as much as possible and hopefully to keep you out of jail. Good luck.
Do not rely on this information. My office accepts clients from Avvo, but this initial impression is not protected by any privilege and is not attorney-client communication. You should consult a lawyer promptly about your legal matter.
There are a multitude of factors involved in ultimate outcome. Full facts would need to be known and no one here may state any particular outcome to you. For instance, judges and court referees typically have a 'human element' discretionary element permitted , and exercised, in their decision making. I urge you to confer with an attorney who likely would include a special plea for arrangements such that you do not lose your job in the process of facing a so-called punishment. Tricia Dwyer Esq.
MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL - ST CLOUD. This law firm may accept avvo posters as clients but this post is not legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship. This post is to be considered general information which may or may not apply to your personal situation. Please do seek private attorney counsel as to your personal legal issues and needs.
What is common for first time violations can vary significantly depending on the judge, prosecutor, probation officer, and the circumstances of your conviction.
For example, if the prosecutor gave you a favorable plea deal when convicted, they may try to impose some more severe penalties for a first time violation.
If the State does take you to a probation revocation hearing, hire a lawyer to help you get to a positive outcome.
