If your son violated the terms of his probation, which using drugs certainly is, the court has the right to revoke his intense supervision (house arrest) and send him to jail for the full term of his original sentence. This is not always the case, and much depends on the recommendation of the probation officer. If this is his first conviction and first problem during probation, he may be given leniency. Nevertheless, count out the possibility that your son may be sentenced to serve the original term of plea bargain.
