The subpoena that you were served with for failing to complete your probation for the assault matter involving you is essentially and order to show cause as to why your probation should not be revoked and the suspended sentence imposed against you applied. If that happens you very well will spend time in jail. I suggest that you consult with a criminal defense attorney immediately.
