Since you are moving you need to notify the DA so that you can work out an agreement to allow you to leave. You can leave but if you do without completing your sentence or getting a deal to serve it when you return, then you will be in violation or any probation and when you do return you will be arrested for fleeing and violating the probation. You do not have to be present at all hearings, your attorney can appear on your behalf by themself. It is possible to get the hearing set out for 6 months (you said you were convicted but I guess you mean that you were arrested and now you are awaiting your fate from a hearing). Since it is a first offense you may get up to 24 months probation. Now if you took jail time you may be able to pay your fine and serve 14-21 days in jail and be free and clear, or you can try to get probation that would start when you return.
