Unlike being charged with a new offense, there is no specific time limit on a violation. It is a "reasonable time." It is really up to the discretion of the judge. If there is a new case pending, however, that changes things a little in terms of "time limits; " the new charges will generally control.

There isn't a set time limit for probation violation appearancesonly on new cases. The law has found that time to be whatever is "reasonable"whatever that is. It is best to get an attorney who can have ordered out to court within a day.

The Judge probably set a formal PV hearing, and the meantime the Judge has set bail. If she can't pay the bail, she will remain in custody until the PV hearing.
