The Severity of a Probation Violation
The state of California has set forth laws specifically to deal with probation violations. Penal Code §1203.2 in particular allows the court to order your arrest if you violate your probation.
After a probation violation, the court can issue a warrant for your arrest. A warrant allows police officers in Palmdale to look for you and arrest you. They can then bring you to court. You may be held in jail until your hearing.

Your case does not go before a jury if you are accused of violating your probation in most cases. However, you could end up facing additional charges if you are accused of committing another crime as part of your probation violation.
