What will happen if I skipped my revocation hearing?

I was put on probation for 5 years served 90 days of an 18 month sentence for burglary in the 1st. I had my 1st dirty … test and was supposed to go to my revocation hearing but didn’t. I have been gone for 3 months and now that I am clean I want to turn myself in. What is the probable outcome?

Most likely there is a bench warrant for your arest due to your failure to attend your revocation hearing. The best way to resolve the situation is to retain a competent criminal defense attorney in the county where the court matter is pending to assist you in resolving the situation. One on attorneypages.com can be found.
