A: Your question is a tad confusing, but it's fair to say that if you committed a 2nd 5th Degree assault 15 days after you were sentenced on a prior matter that you have big problems. If you are convicted of the new offense, you would be in violation of probation. I can only assume that you were also ordered to abstain from mood altering substances. A DWI would suggest that you had consumed some mood altering substance which would also be in violation of your probation. You need an attorney ASAP and you need to start seriously addressing the issues that brought you to court in the first place.

The most likely outcome on the stay of sentence on the first conviction, would be the judge revoking the stay. But, each case is different and individual. So be sure to retain the best defense lawyer you can, ASAP. And, yes - it's time to get 100% sober, always. That will help.
