A: That's serious stuff. More information would be helpful, especially regarding the type of felony charges in North Carolina. . .and whether the charges are in North Carolina. The inquiry is from Georgia.

Here are two quick points:

1. The allegations of new NC criminal charges may be enough to REVOKE the first case or cases of probation; and,

2. Given the prior criminal history and the associated Prior Record Level PRL points and the fact that the offense took place while on probation, if convicted of the new felony charges, the possibility of an active prison term is a very real possibility if not a likelihood.

It's time to retain legal representation.
