The judge has wide latitude in what the disposition will be. If the probation was for 5 years in prison probated for 5 years the Judge could sentence her to 5 years in prison.

He could also extend probation, give jail time as a condition of probation. The bottom line is, the Judge has complete discretion.

A contested revocation means that there is no agreed disposition of the case with the State.
