    Answered . You could get the entire balance of your probation revoked and spend the rest of your sentence in jail. You need to retain counsel to help with your defense.

    Answered . Picking up new charges, at least one of which is a felony, is a clear violation of your probation. You will serve jail time -- maybe the balance of your probation -- then you have to address the new charges. Something you need to know: You can win or have the new charges dismissed and your probation can still be revoked! For these reasons, you need to lawyer up ASAP.

    Answered . You're currently in jail and have Internet access? Things are very different in county jail in CA. You need a criminal defense attorney to help deal with these serious charges and the probation violations. Good luck.
