My best guess without seeing the judgment is that the sentence was suspended since you were put on unsupervised probation and you arent in custody currently.

It may not happen for a while because these things take some time to report back. Therefore, it is possible that you may not lose your...
It all depends on exactly what the text says and if the State has any other evidence against you. You may think that they only have the text when in fact they have more than that.

Sure its possible but you will want to check with your Maryland attorney as to his opinion. Either way, you will definitely want to hire an attorney in NC to try to get the charge dismissed. It will be less likely to affect your MD probation if its dismissed as opposed to if you are convicted.
Hire a lawyer. This offense is a misdemeanor and if you are convicted, it will follow you around for a long time. Plus, it involves honesty, which makes it look even worse to a future employer etc. If its your first offense, many times a lawyer can get it handled without much damage being done.
