Once the positive result is reported back to your PO, they will most likely issue a probation violation.

Once that is issued, a warrant will be issued for your arrest. Your PO most likely will call you to inform you, and request that you come in to their office, where you'll be taken into custody.

Once that occurs, a probation violation hearing (PVH) date will be scheduled.

Unfortunately you can be held in jail without bond on a probation violation charge.

At the PVH the prosecutor will try to prove that a violation did in fact occur, they can call your PO, the person from the AA treatment program as witnesses, as well as present evidence of the results of the test.

You will also have an opportunity to rebut their claims and present a defense.

The judge will then make a ruling on whether or not a violation occurred -- and will issue a sentence accordingly.

Your probation could be revoked, you could be given a longer probation sentence, or jail time, or you could simply be reinstated to probation with a warning.

If this is your first violation, and if you were almost done with your probation period and all the terms of your probation, then it's possible you may just get off with a warning or with a short extension of your probation time.

In any event, you should contact your lawyer now to notify them of the pending violation, so that they can prepare your defense and be present for your PVH.

I hope that helps!

the arrest warrant is a must ? or do I have a chance ?

At this point it is in your PO's discretion, but unfortunately yes, they will most likely issues a violation for this, in which case you would be taken into custody and held for the PVH.

I hope that helps clarify! Let me know if you still have any questions about this.
