Houston Probation Violation Lawyer

Challenging Motions to Revoke Probation in Harris County, TX

Probation violations are taken very seriously in Texas, and if you are suspected of such a violation you may face jail or prison time. At the Law Offices of Jed Silverman, we also take alleged probation violations very seriously. As a team of criminal defense attorneys and support staff, we work throughout Harris County and across the state to protect the rights of Texans in the criminal justice system. If your probation officer has filed a motion to revoke probation against you, we may be able to help.

When a probation officer files a motion to revoke probation, he or she will include the alleged violation/s that led to the motion. Such violations may include: committing a new crime, drug possession or use, failure to report, failure to complete drug or alcohol classes or failure to complete community service. When a motion to revoke probation is filed, an arrest warrant will be issued.

Probation violation cases are different than criminal court cases in that they need be proven only by a preponderance (majority) of evidence, as opposed to beyond a reasonable doubt. They are actually hearings held in front of a judge with no jury present. The unique nature of probation revocation hearings calls for representation by a lawyer who is experienced in these specific matters. An inexperienced or incompetent lawyer may cost you your hearing - and your freedom.

If you lose your probation violation hearing, you may face the original jail or prison sentence that would have been imposed had probation not been granted. For example, if you originally faced five years in prison but received five years on probation instead, you may face that original five-year prison term.
