i have a probation violation warrant in richmond county, ga. It is for failure to go to see my probation officer and also for not finishing my community service. I got probation for a traffic violation, I am attend college and just forgot to go to my probabtion officer. can i get out of this without going to jail and having finger printed and having a bond?
DUI / DWI Attorney
Possibly. Someone, preferably a lawyer, needs to talk to your probation officer and see what can be worked out to resolve the issue. I recommend hiring someone local who is familiar with the court you're in.

I agree with the previous lawyer, hiring a local attorney who has relationships with the players is key. I would also advise that you complete the community service ASAP, better to do community service than jail.
