1 Answer from Attorneys
There are a couple of facts I would need to know for certain, but generally here is how it goes
1. If you pled guilty to a misdemeanor and were ordered to pay restitution as part of probation the probation period can't go beyond the 3 years (which is the maximum term length of probation for a Misdemeanor). However if the probation department filed a violation of probation before the expiration date then the period of probation could be held open by the court to give an opportunity to pay it to avoid a harsher sentence of say jail for failing to comply and then probation could be discharged/closed once restitution is paid.
2. If you pled guilty to a felony the maximum term of probation is 5 years. If the court sentenced you to 3 years probation, which would be unusual, the court could bring you back to be re-sentenced to longer term of probation to comply with restitution.
3. The probation department would file the violation or request re-sentence from the Court and a court appearance by ypu would typically be required in either case.
