Legal Question

Asked on: 7/09/12, 12:01 pm

I violated felony probation by being arrested for a misdemeanor. As a result I was mandated to complete 12 months at a residential drug treatment program. While I here I relapsed and the judge told the director to give me an additional 6-12 months. My question is, can a judge extend a sentence that is being served without notifying the defendant or even issuing a new revised court order?
