    Depending on how much time he has left on probation will determine his exposure to jail time on a violation of probation for committing the new offense. A second offense shoplifting charge doesn't help. this scenario. He needs to consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer to understand what he can do to minimize his exposure.

    It depends on what your sentence says. Most likely it would say get an evaluation and complete any recommendations made. What would be the purpose of getting an evaluation if you didn't follow through with the evaluators recommendation? Failure to comply would be a violation of your probation and lead to your arrest.

    A speeding ticket in Georgia is a misdemeanor and it will get reported to your home state's DMV. However, you may be able to get the speed reduced or the charge amended to an offense which does not get reported to Ga DDS and would not be forwarded to your home state. Traffic violations typically only appear on your driving record and do not appear on your criminal history rap sheet (called Gcic in GA) so a criminal history report would not show the violation.

    If you are on probation and get arrested for a new offense, your probation officer will file a warrant for your arrest for violating your probation once he or she finds out. If you broke and entered someones house and the state proves there case beyond a reasonable doubt, you could get jail time on top of the time you get for violating your probation.

    Misdemeanors in Georgia are typically punishable by up to a 1,000.00 fine and/or 1 year in jail. If you have no prior convictions, misdemeanor shoplifting usually results in no jail time. If your bond on the felony is conditioned on no new arrests, you could have violated your bond conditions. Your attorney can advise you regarding that. You need to be represented on the new offense.

    You need to hire an attorney to file the proper motion with the court. In many cases, the probation officer will not appose the motion which helps convince the judge to terminate your probation. Does your sentence specifically allow for early termination? Is it a 1st offender plea? Theses are some questions which may affect the outcome.
