Yes. They can give her up to the full sentence that was available on the case in the beginning. (For example, a misdemeanor assault carries up to 1 year in jail. Even if she is on probation for 1.75 years before she violates, she can be given up to 1 year in jail up revocation.)

One does not get "street time credit" while on probation.
