Am I going to have to finish the rest of my jail term for violating my probation?

I was on probation for a not related charge and just got caught driving on suspended license. Am I going to have to finish the rest of the sentence that was on my probation? I was originally supposed to do a year in county but I only did a few months.

    It depends on what the judge wants to do. If fully revoked you will do the entire time.

    You may or may not have your probation revoked. Be aware that if your probation is revoked, you are not limited to serving out what is remaining on your probation.? You can be sentenced up to the amount of time that was probated.

    Your question cannot be answered because it depends on the district attorney and the judge. The district attorney will either request the judge to extend your probation or will move to revoke your probation. Typically the judge follows the recommendation of the district attorney's office. Regardless of the new violation, it is a violation just the same so you have failed to honor the terms of your probation and a hearing will be held to address this violation.

    That is why it is better to have a lawyer go to court and talk to the Judge, preferably before the case turns into a warrant and a full-blown PV.
