Do I need to keep going to see my probation officer after I have been served revocation hearing papers?

I am on a 3 year ISP probation sentence currently and my PO has asked the judge to set a hearing to revoke me. This is my second revocation hearing and the PO has listed several false allegations for the judge to review. Now he wants me to come back into his office in which I believe he is going to arrest me. I would like the time to get my affairs in order and to show the judge I have mitigating circumstances surrounding the alleged violations and want to obtain private counsel. Can I now just wait until I appear in front of the District Judge for review?

    It can be a violation not to have the contact with the PO that he is requesting. And likely you will be arrested. I would arrange for your private counsel before going in. When a PO alleges a violation, you can either admit or deny the allegations, and you would want to deny the allegations and be prepared to prove your side at the hearing that will be scheduled after you deny the allegations.
