First and foremost, thank you for choosing justanswer.com. I am a licensed criminal defense attorney, Editor of PA DUI Defense, 3d., and member of the American Bar Association.
The worst Lackawanna County can do is revoke your "street time" and resentence you to that time. For example, lets say you served 3 months and then were paroled. Any time spent on parole or probation is considered "street time". Once violated, the Office of Probation and Parole can revoke your street time and resentence, i.e. thus, they have 23 1/2 months to play around with if you only served 3 months of your sentence incarcerated.
I will say this: it would be odd for your PO to recommend your entire street time be revoked and recalculated. Your attorney should contact your PO immediately and begin a dialog explaining any mitigating circumstances, etc. It also helps if you and your PO had a decent relationship while you were on probation. Above is the worst Lackawanna Co. can do, but I would not necessarily expect the worst.

Yes, that is the worst case scenario as far as a probation violation would be concerned. They cannot resentence you to more time than you actually owe, thus, 23 months would be worst case scenario.
