I am on probation and my friend is also.We were not suppose to be talking however i tipped him off that probation was coming to his house to check on him. I got caught and would like to know what are the chances of me going to jail and is there anything i can do to possibly fix my mistake. This will be my first violation ever!
I don’t know what you are on probation for but in a worst case scenario if your are found to have violated probation the Court can revoke your probation and sentence you to anything within the guidelines of the underlying crime. As a practical matter if this is a first violation and you have otherwise been doing well on probation and you can demonstrate remorse the Court might very well give you a second chance. You should certainly have a lawyer and remember that if you can’t afford one you are entitled to have one appointed top you by the Court. Good Luck!
