    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . The FTA is a misdmeanor and can result in a violation of your probation but very unlikey. Make sure you show up to court to take care of the speeding ticket and make sure you always show up to court. I doubt you will be violated for this but you may want to contact an expereinced attorney in your area in case you do.

    Answered . The fta is a violation of your probation- but in your situation I doubt if it would violate your terms. Get an attorney and deal with ticket and get the fta reduced to an infraction.
