    The question makes no sense. The plea offer was extended and accepted? Has the case been closed with a plea? If yes, then the only way you can get jail is if you violate probation. If no, then accept the deal, which has no jail time, and the case is over. What are you writing about? Anytime I see confusing questions, it means you need an attorney.
