A revocation of the remaining 2 years on probation (2 years to serve in prison), especially since it is another theft offense.

The judge can order jail time on the case you are serving probation for reason that you violated the terms of probation... especially getting a subsequent charge of the same nature. You can also be sentence for up to a year in jail on the new charge. It appears that you didn't learn much from the first case.

Your biggest headache is going to be your revocation. Depending on whether there was time imposed and stayed or a with held sentence will determine the degree of your headache. To control these events the best way possible, you should get a lawyer now before it is too late.
