Would it help my case if I get a lawyer to help me get out of probation by serving jail time for my misdemeanor. Woud it help me by serving less time ?

The idea of probation is to keep you out of jail. Not sure why you woul want this You need to get an attorney and work through this. Just keep in mind there are other reasons for probation and it may be in your best interest to have probation.
I agree with Mr. Green. Probation is a condition where the judge issues a sentence, but suspends it on the condition that you behave and comply with the terms of probation. When probation is violated, the judge has the legal authority to impose the entire sentence.
Everyone I know would prefer probation over jail time. I'm not sure what you are driving at?
