IhearingI have been on probation since May 2014 2014. Unfortunately, it took me a while to find a job and get a car, both of which I now have. I have also just recently started back to college. I received notice to attend an administrative hearing for violations of probation including nonpayment and no community service completed. I was just able to send my first payment and now that I have transportation, have started community service. Yes, both of these occured later than my po would have liked but I am now in a position where I can better and more successfully manage the conditions of my probation. I will attend this hearing but I would like to know what to expect. What usually happens in these hearings? Will I be arrested there?
Your performance on probation will be reviewed. Since you have a reasonable explanation for your performance so far and appear to have a good attitude toward continued compliance and completion of the terms, I doubt you'll be arrested.

I am assuming that your probation officer said that she was taking you back in front of the Judge that sentenced you for an administrative probation hearing, right? They are probably saying that you have violated some term of your probation, but you haven't been arrested for any new charge. Depending upon the Judge and the probation officer, you could be looking at additional probation time, more community service or some additional jail time. You really need to talk to an attorney that knows the system in Cobb County I was a former prosecutor in Cobb County.
