I Took time served on criminal trespassing of habitation and misdemeanor weed possession. What are my chances of receiving the deferred adjudicated probation on the felony charge?
Is in a completely different county than my first charge was in and years later?
Does not matter if it was in a different county. Get an attorney and let that attorney make the assessment about your chances of getting some form of probation. It does not sound like you do well on probation but that attorney needs to look at all the facts.
Does not matter what county it is / was in. Hire a lawyer and talk about getting you into treatment. On paper, you do not appear to be a good risk to bother putting on probation. If you get help, then perhaps a prosecutor / judge will agree that you have made a change and are worth the investment of resources to help you out.
You are not going to get deferred adjudication probation. Quit dreaming. You cannot continue to violate the drug laws, the burglary laws, the theft laws and expect a prosecutor is going to continue to sweep your problem under the rug. Get into rehab. You are headed to prison if you don't. Your only chance of not going to prison in your very near future is to get help and show the criminal justice system you have retired from your idiotic conduct. Picture yourself in ten years if you do not get help: you will be sitting in some jail holdover cell, on the dirty floor, with a roll of toilet paper for your pillow, freezing, waiting on the guard to pass out another balogna sandwich, and some young person is asking you if you think probation is possible. That young person is asking YOU because you have that grey palor that only jail and prison can give your skin ... you look like a veteran of the system. You will be telling that young person to shut up and quit dreaming. Go to court. Ask for a court appointed lawyer. Take whatever the court offers to resolve your case. When you go off to custody, wherever they send you, have a long talk with yourself. When you get out get rid of your loser friends. Start with going to an AA or NA meeting. Go from there. Good luck to you.
