Customer Question

I'm in louisiana and Im on probation for bank fraud. My sentence was 4 years hard labor suspended and 5 years probation. I was order to pay restuition and court fee and IDO fees. I was arrested on a new charge of issuing worthless checks. I turned myself in and bonded out. A few days later my probation officer came to my house and informed me that I would have to have a revocation hearing.He also stated that I haven't been paying any my fines. I made some payments and haven't paid my court cost and IDO fees which was due within the first 12 months on probation. I have been on probation for 20 months. He stated that he would not ask for anything but wanted to put the court on notice. I just don't have the money right now to pay everything I just finished paying 3 tickets. What can i expect at this hearing?

When your PO said they would not ask for anything, do they mean they will not ask for the probation to be revoked?
