If I’m currently on 6 months probation for an DUI but have not successfully completed the terms of my probation, what can happen to me?

This is my last month and I might be violated for not completing the given task. If I were to be violated for a case like this, would I be able to have a bond? And what’s are the possibilities of punishment for this type if case?

If the deadline for you to comply with the terms of your probation are not met then the court can hold that your failure to do so will result in the imposition of the suspended sentence it issued against you when you were sentenced. As such, you need to carefully read the terms of your sentence and you will find the answer to your question.
