Your first offender sentence can be revoked and you can be resentenced up to the maximum sentence available for the offense.

We recommend that you hire a criminal defense attorney ASAP concerning your rights nd options. Your lawyer will be able to tell you that you face potential revocation of the full amount of time for which the judge could have originally sentenced you. Again, hire a lawyer ASAP! Good luck!

IF it is the same felony a motion for double jeopardy will be filed. However, what you consider to be the same felony, may not be viewed as the same under the law.
