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
