If the person is on federal probation or supervised release, the amount of time that may be revoked depends upon whether the new charge is a misdemeanor or felony - the amount of time left on probation actually affects the possible sentence very little (particularly if this matter is pending in the Southern District of Georgia).

It would depend on whether they were on Georgia's regular probation or first offender probation. If they are on regular probation and commit a new offense, they can have the entire balance of probation revoked meaning they could get - as time - whatever is left on their probation.

If they are on first offender probation in Georgia, then they could be resentenced and receive the maximum amount of time allowed by law for that original offense, minus however much time they already served on probation.
