If you hire an attorney to handle your ticket it is likely that they can get the ticket taken care of without you appearing at all. Your likely options would be either a diversion or an amendment to a nonmoving violation so it won't affect your insurance. If you did choose to take the case to trial would would have to appear. Best of luck.
The mere accusation isn't enough to revoke your probation. You are entitled to a hearing on the matter if the prosecutor's office does choose to file a motion to revoke your probation. I recommend contacting a local attorney immediately.
