I was on 2 year probation for prostitution. This month would have been end of 2 years. I had an issue completing all the classes bc my son was just born as I was put on probation so finding child care was rough. And I wasn't able to go to classes n alot of the classes cost alot of money that I didn't have bc i wasn't able to work bc my son was so young and I was a single mother. Back this December I pawned an item and it ended up being stolen and I got charged with breaking and entering, Grand larceny, larceny with intent to sell, and accepting money under false pretenses. I was battered by detectives for 6-7 hours at police station bc they wanted me to tell them what I knew. I asked for a lawyer and told them I had no idea anything was stolen. I was kept in a below freezing temperatures room by myself after that. I eas made to feel like a bad mother and at my bond hearing they flipped it and tried to say "that I knew that it was stolen. " when I never said that and there was no recordings proofing I said that.
Sounds like your best bet is to work with your current attorney on the new charges - if you are found not guilty, that will help in your probation violation case. If you don't have an attorney on the new charges, get one ASAP. If you've been appointed the public defender, work with your attorney and tell him/her what happened. Finally, don't post any more information about your case online - this is a public website and is visible to everyone, including the police and prosecution. Good luck.

I agree, you need tow work with your attorney. There sounds like there's a lot going on in your case. Reach out as soon as possible. Best of luck,
This answer does not create a attorney/client relationship, but is intended solely in the court of discussion. It is always my recommendation to retain an attorney whenever a court appearance is necessary. This recommendation is highlighted when it relates to an individual's criminal record.
