JD, on the probation violation. As you remember from past

For Paul JD, Paul on the probation violation. As you remember from past questions I was found to be indigent and appointed counsel in the matter. After being found guilty a motion for new trial was filed as well as my attorney's motion to withdraw. There was a hearing set for these motions. My attorney's withdraw motion was the first one the court heard. The court granted the motion and excused my attorney. Then the court proceeded to the motion for new trial, which I was not prepared to address this pro se. The court led me to believe the hearing was continued to give me time to hire my own attorney. The court did not appoint new counsel to represent me as I was found to be indigent. After leaving the court house that day the court denied the motion for new trial and set a sentencing date. I appeared unrepresented and was sentenced to 90 days in jail, 88 days suspended. Up to 1 yr probation and a $315.00 fine. The court never addressed any conditions of probation. Now I am being accused of a probation violation. Do I have a defense against the probation violation that due to the court proceeding in the case and ruling on motions and continuing on to sentencing unrepresented, since the court never appointed new counsel, that I did not have an attorney to explain to me the sentence I received and what would be expected of me to complete the sentence? There is an order from the court that just stated I was to sign up for probation supervision. With no explanation of what probation supervision entitled. The violation I am being accused of has nothing to do with the crime in which I am on probation. So would the fact I was indigent and denied counsel at a critical stage of my case be a valid defense?
