Violating any condition of probation, even a minor one, subjects you to the maximum punishment your conviction allows for. For example, if you are on probation for a class A misdemeanor, your maximum punishment is one year in jail. If you are on probation for 3 years and violate your probation after 2 ½ years, you still face one year in jail. If you are on felony probation, you face the maximum period of prison allowed for the felony you were convicted of. Thus, for an E felony, you face up to 4 years in prison, for a D felony, you face up to 7 years in prison and for a C felony you face up to 15 years in prison.
