Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a litigation attorney here to assist you.
Technically, even being charged or arrested is enough to violate the terms of your parole. However, it is up to your probation officer to determine whether or not to revoke you just because of the charge. But, if you're convicted of the DUI, it will likely revoke your parole.
I don't have a probation officer I have a parole officer. Does that make a difference? Is this more series because I am on parole and not probation? If I were to go back to jail -how much of my time would I have to do?
It's the same thing - sorry for interchanging the titles.
It's not more serious because you're on parole. If you violate parole or probation, you are revoked and subject to serving the sentence that you had been relieved of.
If you are revoked, the judge would send you back for the remainder of your sentence. However, you would be entitled to early release for good behavior, etc.
