Probation Violation Tennessee Code Annotated § 40-35-311
If you are on probation, and a judge learns that you have broken any laws, or violated the terms of their probation, he has the power to issue warrant for your arrest. You will then have to defend against the claims that you violated your probation.
If the judge finds that you have violated the terms of probation by a preponderance of the evidence, your probation can be revoked, as well as the suspension of your sentence. You could have the original judgment entered and have original probation converted to jail time.
