A: Justia notifies attorneys of new questions based on where they are licensed. Even though you are currently in Texas, this is a problem with the Georgia criminal justice system. You should re-post this question with the location set to the city in Georgia where your probation was based instead of listing it as Vidor, Texas because you'll need the guidance of an attorney who is licensed to practice law in Georgia.

A: Furthermore, it is possible that Georgia may issue a warrant for your arrest and seek to have you extradited from Texas to Georgia.
