That is up to the judge and the recommendations of your probation officer. The more violations you get the more likely it is that your probation is going to get revoked, thus meaning you can be re-sentenced for the original offense. Above all, that is not what you want to happen. You can ask your probation officer what they are likely to recommend to the judge for a second violation and what the judge is likely to do. It also will depend on what type of violation it is as not all violations are treated equally.
