There is no 496(b) - I assume you mean either 496(a) - possession of stolen property or 496(d) - possession of a stolen vehicle. If it's a different code section entirely, then my answer regarding how much you're looking at might change. You're looking at being in violation of your probation and subject to additional punishment. You have 3 years (on a 496) hanging over your head. By not remanding to custody, you now face the original 180 and any additional punishment the court sees fit to give you.
My first suggestion: get a lawyer before you do anything. Contact the attorney that represented you on the original plea.
yes, have a lawyer handle it for you. Good advice, good luck!
