You should hire an attorney to file a motion to recall the warrant. If the motion is granted, the warrant will be quashed and the case set for trial. Some warrants can be recalled and some cannot so speak with a lawyer.

A VOP is up to your PO, but generally speaking, they will wait until the outcome of the present charges to decide whether to violate. However, if you fail to promptly inform your PO of the new charge, that in and of itself is a violation--assuming you are on supervised probation. if on unsupervised probation, then there is no one to report to, so any violation will be based on a record check that is automatically run at or near the close of your probation period. many times the record check is run a month before expiration of the probation, so it is possible the new charge will be missed. Can't guarantee that. As for the possibility of bond on the new charge, that will be up to the commissioner, but if you appear while still out on probation, you may be denied bail and have to go before a district court judge. PG County is notorious for their backlog in processing defendants on warrants. Be prepared for a wait --a long wait, often 24 hours or more-- in custody before getting in front of a commissioner. I usually recommend clients tun themselves in earlier in the week and really early in the morning, so they are sure to get before a commissioner in time to make the bail review docket in front of a judge by the next morning after they turn themselves in. That probably won't happen if you wait until late morning on Thursday, and then you'll be held until Monday to see a judge if you're denied bond (or can't afford bond). Sometimes it's best to retain counsel first, have your lawyer arrange the turn-in date and time, and then have the lawyer conferenced-in by telephone when you appear before the Commissioner, which could be in the middle of the night. You'll have to have the lawyer's cell phone number. Good luck to you. Make sure you have a lawyer for trial at the latest.
