If a person is arrested on a probation violation, the court could sentence that person to serve the balance of the prison time that was originally suspended. That person definitely needs to speak with an attorney about the case as soon as possible.
If you violate the terms of your probation you could be sentenced to prison or jail for the term that was originally suspended. For example if your original sentence was 3 years and you served 4 months and the balance of 32 months was suspended on condition you complete community control/probation you could be sentenced to 32 more months in prison. I suggest consulting an attorney to discuss this case.
