The consequences of a felony probation violation can run the gamut from a possible violation and continuation of probation to a complete revocation of probation and activation of a suspended sentence. Often times there are factual disputes involved in a probation violation allegation; having an attorney, whether retained or appointed, is essential!
For most violations a "quick dip" (short stay in the county jail) or a "CRV" (revocation of 90 days of the suspended sentence, short for "confinement in response to violation) are the worst possible sanctions. However, if there are multiple prior CRVs, a probationer has a new criminal conviction, or a charge of absconding is sustained, the balance of a suspended sentence may be revoked. For many people on felony probation, this can add up to several months in jail.
