If you just received a suspended sentence for theft and are on probation what do you do when new charges are filed?

Obtain legal counsel as soon as possible. If you cannot afford

private counsel request the court to appoint you a public defender

at the arraignment. In such a case it is not advisable to use

self-representation without being fully informed of your legal

rights and the consequences to entering into an agreement with the

state or entering a plea to the court.

Note to this: when approached by officer(s) say "I'm more than

willing to co-operate but I feel more comfortable with it being

arranged through my attorney" Say nothing else until explained to

an attorney and let he/she speak on your behalf

violations depend on charges filed
