Question:

I've was arrested, then the charges were dropped, but there's a revocation hearing schedules. Do I get a lawyer?

Answer:

Probationers who are charged with violating a condition of their probation are entitled to counsel, by statute (in the federal system and some states) or by court decision, interpreting the state's constitution. If the probationer cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for him; and if he can afford one, he must be given reasonable time to hire one. At the hearing, the judge would choose and impose the sentence.
