    You were told that when and under what circumstances? On the record? Your probation officer concurs?

    So you're still on probation but at some point in the past, due to the missed court date, you stopped going to meetings with your probation officer?

    Missed court do to being in the hospital.
    How long ago was that? what was the purpose of the court hearing?

    Was this a sudden medical emergency that required inpatient hospitalization? Did you inform the court or probation officer in advance of the court date that you were going into the hospital or were in the hospital? Did you inform your probation officer after-the-fact?

    You were told this by whom? Your probation officer? You were told this in relation to what? Your unpaid restitution, prior to your failure to appear? Your failure to appear? Both?

    Now you need to deal with, I assume, a bench warrant for your failure to appear, your probation violation and your unpaid restitution. It would be sensible for you to work with a criminal defense lawyer.
