What should happen is the person at some point will get arrested for violating probation, then there is a hearing to determine if in fact, the person violated probation. If the person is found to have violated probation, the probation officer will make a recommendation to the judge and then the judge will decide what happens. Under the facts that you presented, I think most judges would be inclined to revoke probation and have the person start serving their original sentence. While its nice the person remained out of trouble, the bottomline is the person absconded and did not comply with the orders of the court
