    You probably won't face the same judge. Roxbury court has a lot of judges and it really just depends who is assigned to probation session on the day you are in court. The only exception is if the original judge kept the jurisdicition over your case. This is an unlikely scenario that would only happen in special situations. Paying your fines before the hearing is a very good idea. However, not showing up for 3 months is still going to be an issue.

    It may be difficult, but you would need the judge to allow you to do that. The attorney that you hired needs to file his appearance and depending on what judge you get and how long your case has been pending may allow you to switch.
