Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
It is possible, but not likely that you will be jailed again on the PFA unless they find you have further violated the PFA. Generally, on an alleged violation it would be credit for time served. If the judge dropped the first violation, it is not likely you would see jail again on the other two served on you the day you were released as long as you do not violate them. HOWEVER, you need to have an attorney representing you and you need to get one before the hearing to protect yourself if you did not do what you were accused of doing.
