    Default Probation Violation

    You need to explain your financial situation to your probation officer. As it is, you're compounding your problems with your failure to appear - something that of itself can get you violated - so you need to contact your probation officer ASAP with a very sincere apology.

    As for the money, get a loan, get a student loan, take an advance on a credit card, borrow money from family, get a second job.... Pay off your fines.
