Last year I went to court and got a year of probo but I for off at 6m, right now I was shoplifting at walmart got caught I had pot they found it then I got in a fight at school and I got charged with assault and battery.
Well first you shouldn't be making any admissions on a public forum. None of this information is covered by the Attorney/Client Privilege. I spent years in Juvenile court as an assistant public defender many years ago and I can assure you that the more frequently you get into trouble, the stiffer the sentences get.
No one can tell you exactly what punishment you're going to receive. As a matter of fact making any guarantees is unethical and any lawyer who guarantees you anything should make you turn and run.
In my experience, your punishment will likely be more severe than it was before unless there are significant mitigating circumstances which were never brought to the attention of the court the first time you were detained.
You need to have your parents or guardian find an attorney who has experience in that particular court. If you cannot afford one, have them look into a public defender. You are right to be worried because you have multiple charges and prior charges. The Judge in juvenile court is interested in rehabilitation rather than just punishment, but he or she will not be happy with you. There are things you can do between now and your court date, however, to mitigate the circumstances, such as writing letters of apology, doing community service projects or volunteer work, seeking some kind of counseling, etc. An attorney experienced in your court would be able to tell you what type of things would work to try and keep you out of YDC.

That will depend upon the judge to whom your case is assigned. It looks like you are in Cobb County, Georgia. That means your case would be handled in the Cobb County Juvenile Courts.
Under Georgia law, you could be sent to YDC. However, the specific facts of your case will need to be addressed by an experienced defense attorney who can give you more specific advice. Without looking at all of the facts of these offenses, it is hard to tell whether the judge will put you in YDC.
I strongly recommend that you contact an attorney in your area for more advice.
