You need to meet with an attorney ASAP. Given your previous violation of probation by committing a new larceny offense, the judge is unlikely to cut you a break either on the new charge (which carries a maximum of 5 years) or on the probation violation. I don't know how much time you have over your head on probation, but you are a good candidate to serve all or most of that suspended sentence.Ask a similar question
To start, the petit 3rd is a felony charge in Virginia. To echo the prior response, the fact that you were already violated once, and served time for that violation, the judge is likely not going to be amenable to "cutting you a break". You need to talk to a local criminal defense attorney about your circumstances and to begin to develop a strategy to minimize your jail time.
