Q. If i am on probation and have a stayed sentence of 6 years. I pick up 3 new charges and my probation officer lifts hold
A: If you're on probation and you're accused of violating your rules of probation, you can be revoked. Generally probation officers will force you to sit in jail on a probation hold while investigating the allegations against you. If that hold is released, that's certainly a good sign, but it's not the end of the inquiry. The fact of the hold removal does not necessarily mean you will avoid revocation. The hold can be re-initiated upon conviction.
