Need answers on what’s on going happen or might happen

Hey I have 100 hours to do that I didn’t complete and my probation officer told me that he is going to send out a warrant through summons and I’m just worried I’m going to get jail time. This is my first breach ever and I’m almost done my proba

While a breach of probation is a relatively serious charge, as it is considered a violation of a court order, it is worth noting that there is no minimum sentence for the offence -- in other words, if you are found guilty / plead guilty to a breach, there are other potential outcomes besides jail.  Also, depending on the circumstances of the breach, it is possible that, with the right negotiation method with the Crown, they may agree to an outcome that does not require a plea -- which has happened in a few breach of probation cases of mine in the past.

Good luck!

Also, you may wish to obtain legal advice from a lawyer in your area to see if it would be legally possible to apply to the sentencing Judge for a change in your probation that might allow you to avoid a breach. A lawyer would have to review your probation order, along with the work you've completed so far.
