Ok, thanks for taking the time to add that added info. Not knowing the full extent of your case and the plea agreement giving you probation it is hard to really tell you what will occur. I would expect the worst. You plead guilty to obtain probation it sounds. The courts (judge) can at their discretion order you to jail time to violation of probation based on the sentencing guidelines of the charge itself that you plead to and subsequently were given probation.
I suggest you attempt to contact if possible the attorney they represented you during the plea agreement. They can order the records from the courts that were made in reference to the judges comments on any terms of violation of probation. Actually, you can do this yourself by contacting the courts and ref: back to the case number XXXXX get them. In these reports they will state the "conditions of probation". This will give you a far better idea of what to expect. Hair will hold trace for about 90 to 120 days time. So if you have used during this time you can indeed expect it to come back dirty. The courts can order you to be placed in jail as a condition of your violation of probation. The time that they would give is very difficult for me to say or find. But expect them to either up your probation time or send you to jail for the time that you could have got had you not plead guilty and got the probation. Let me know if this helps answer your question.
