Can a parole violation result in being incarcerated beyond my current discharge date of 7/9/09? The offense was public intoxication.

I am on parole for a DWI that happened in 1999. I have only 7 weeks remaining on my parole. Two weeks ago I was arrested and charged with Public Intoxication. P.O. is awaiting arrest report to determine if she will revoke/violate. If parole is revoked, is there any chance of my being in jail past my discharge date of 7/7/09?

Yes, especially since you are on parole for a DWI.  What are the conditions of your parole, which, unlike probation, is actually jail time in public.  Oh, yes it can go past your discharge date.  Try:
