I violated my probation for the first time by driving on a suspended license. I reported it to my PO as I was supposed to, and he had me arrested. I spent 3 weeks in jail before I had a probation violation hearing, and the judge let me go with credit for time served. I got arrested again because the police responded to a noise violation in my building and I gave them a false name when they requested my ID. I did not give them a fake ID-- just the wrong name, because I didn't want to be in a police report. After I admitted my real name, they arrested me and took me to jail with no other charges-- I don't do drugs, didn't have anything in my apartment. I do not want to be in jail over Christmas. Is there a way to get a preemptive hearing to at least get sentenced BEFORE I go to jail?
