Worried how this may effect my probation?
It shouldn't affect your probation, but you you may have trouble getting supervision for the speeding ticket. An experienced, local attorney may be able to work something out. I'd recommend getting a consultation just to make sure you know all your options. If you need a referral, feel free to give me a call. I'd be happy to give you the name of a good traffic defense attorney. 1-800-517-1614.

You should contact an attorney familiar with the jurisdiction in which your case is scheduled. Nevertheless, in many jurisdictions only a criminal conviction(not a traffic infraction) will result in a probation violation. Beware that in some jurisdictions(i.e. Virginia) a speeding ticket could be charged as reckless driving(a criminal charge) if the speed is excessive.
