Typically, you do not get a bond on a violation of probation; however, there are always exceptions. If the violation is minor and the person has a limited history, a bond is possible, but not likely.
Your attorney needs to immediately get a hold of the prosecutor and see what the plea offer is. Is there a chance to reinstate on probation with credit for the time she already has in? Or, is the offer possibly time served. While time served end probation and get he out of jail, it will also make her adjudicated guilty of the charge. It would be a misdemeanor conviction and not a felony, but it would be on her record just the same.

I agree with the previous answer. Usually, the court will place a no-bond hold on the defendant until the probation violation case is resolved. But, there are exceptions if the violation is considered to be minor and other circumstances. Your friend's attorney may request that the court set a bond for your friend in her case. As the previous answer mentioned, your friend's attorney should speak with the prosecutor ASAP about what offer is available to try to resolve the case to try to get out of jail and possibly even reinstated on probation. Good luck!
