How much jail time could you get in the state of Texas for violation of probation for misdemeanor possession of marijuana?
The full length of your probation! If you were sentenced to five years of probation, you could be sentenced to five years, even if the violation occurred on the last day of your probationary period. (That's a pretty tough pill to swallow--five years in prison when one year in jail was the most you c…ould have received.) I've actually seen someone who'd served 9 years and 11 months of a 10 year probation get sentenced to 10 years. Don't mess with Texas, it's serious about crime! (MORE)

Slander is a civil issue, not a crime. You cannot go to jail for slander but you may be sued. If you lose the lawsuit it may cost you money.
Be VERY careful - it's not only Tennessee you have to worry about. In addition to whatever penalty your state has for the firearms offense, it also remains a FEDERAL felony offense for a convicted felon to ever own or possess a firearm. The United States Code, in some cases, makes the penalty for il…legal possession of a firearm a mandatory minimum fifteen (15) years in prison. Title 18 U.S.C. sec 924(e)(1). The addition of the other two offenses only makes it worse. The offender is looking at some SERIOUS time behind bars. (MORE)

That depends greatly on the state. In Texas, possession of marijuana punishment is dependent on the amount (based on ounces), and Texas does not have a possession with intent to distribute for marijuana. I believe many other states to increase the punishment for intent to distribute even with mariju…ana. I would suggest you look to the penal code of your state, or possibly re-post the question to include the state. (MORE)
Under GA law, 1-5 years. However, this is also a violation of FEDERAL law, which has it's own penalties, usually starting at 5 years.

Depends. Up to 11 years or more. Which also includes no jail time at all depending on the type and severity of the abuse, and what jurisdiction you are in.
Depends on the laws where YOU live, and what the prior convictions were for. No one answer.
It all depends on the record of the person possessing the cocaine, how much cocaine is involved and whom the cocaine was to be sold.
It depends on what kind of theft it was. The maximum amount you'd be in jail for would be three years. However, since you are a first time offender, you'd stand a good chance of avoiding the maximum sentence.
I believe if it is a repeated offence up to four years, if not i think it is 2 years.
