15. It doesn't really apply when someone violates their probation.

Most of the time, when someone violates their probation they are remanded without bail and made to serve out their original sentence entirely. I've seen it happen more times than I can count. Some judges will be more lenient if someone gets pulled over for a taillight out or something like that, but he had a long string of convictions for theft and fighting, and he very willfully destroyed that car's windows, so there aren't too terribly many judges out there who would have even given him bail at all. 98% of the time, it's "do not pass 'go;' do not collect $200."
