The officer asked if I had anything in the car and after thinking about it I remembered that the gun was in there. This is my first offence and I've never done anything wrong before. what am I looking at as far as punishment?

I am on probation for reckless endangerment. I have all of my fees paid and community service hours done. I recently was arrested for marijuana possession, paraphernalia, and charged with a marijuana DUI. I was sober, and I'm confident that the blood test will come back fine and the DUI will get taken care of. But I was still arrested. My PO is going to wait until after my new court case to violate me. This is my first violation. I am a full time student, my record is not bad, I hold 3 jobs. I will pass a million clean drug tests and take a drug class before my hearing. My case is in Shelby County, Division 9. I know that lawyers on this site see VOP cases all the time. What is a REALISTIC expectation of punishment for violation? Anything can happen, but what should I really expect?
