I'm supost to go to court soon for a shoplifting charge. however i have a trip planed for three days after would it be possible to get permission to leave that soon if i get probation ?
It sounds like you do not understand the court system enough and should have an attorney to assist you with this case. Regardless, depending on your case, you are probably not going to jail at the first hearing, unless very serious, priors, probation, or bail is required and you cannot post bail.
Get an attorney before you go to court. Unless your court date is for you to enter a guilty plea or go to trial, I don't see why you would be sentenced and then be on probation on that date. If you're planning to enter a guilty plea, you could always call the probation officer, explain the situation, and ask them.
To avoid delay and confusion, just request travel permission for that trip at the time you enter your guilty plea (assuming that is what you do) and have the judge state on the record and/or note on your judgment that you have permission to make the trip.
