I've been to court multiple times for a pending felony charge and they just keep placing my case on 2 hour call? What are the fine lines and details to this?

I agree with all previous statements other lawyers stated. I also suggest that if you live a good lawful life and at least five years following termination of your probation you should look into applying for a pardon with the Georgia Department of Pardons and Paroles. After a few years on probation it may also be worthwhile to apply for early termination of probation.See question

The following answer assumes were sentenced to a misdemeanor offense. You have not made that clear. If your probation was through a private probation company it could not be tolled and therefore your probation is expired and you are released according the the Georgia Supreme Court. If you are on probation through a county or city probation department and if your probation was tolled becasue you disappeared then you are not released. In that case if you are caught and your probation is revoked, you could be required to serve the balance of your sentence in jail. Further, If you are on misdemeanor probation for multiple offenses, supervised by a county or city, and if your probation was tolled, you could be facing a lot more than just six more months upon revcation.See question

This would be something for your lawyer to delicately address with the judge.See question
I recently read about the Supreme Court's decision on the private probation companies extending terms, or tolling. I got a d.u.I. in 2009, & they still got me on probation.
The Georgia Supreme Court held that defendants placed on misdemeanor probation with a private probation company cannot by law have their probated sentences tolled. It is likely your DUI probation has therefore expired.See question

Take out your copy of the sentence and see if it says you have do to community service. If it does then immediately start doing it now. This way you can show the probation officer that you are doing it and apologize for the misunderstanding. If it says nothing about community service then a mistake was made and you got away with it,See question
