If you are in full compliance otherwise, then probably nothing, however, you DO need to contact the court and explain what happened because a warrant may still have issued.

There is probably an arrest warrant for you. A lawyer may be able to get the warrant cancelled. You can also turn yourself in to the police and should get a bond.

    Contact the court clerk to see if your case is active and if a warrant was issued for your arrest. If the court had proof of completion of all requirements, it may have waived your appearance and just closed the case. If there is a warrant outstanding, you need to add yourself on calendar and take care of any remaining issues in the case. You can and should have an attorney help you if there is a warrant outstanding. Good Luck!

    There is a warrant outstanding for your arrest. You need to turn yourself in to the police. You may get a new sentence that would extend your period of probation, along with more community service and a fine.

    You should hire a lawyer to go to court to recall the warrant. A lawyer can do this without you present, so it is less risky for you.

    The judge could revoke any probation and set a "Probation Revocation Hearing" or he or she could issue a Warrant for your arrest. You would need to call the court clerk to inquire of what action was taken on your case.
