As a team of Houston probation violation attorneys and support staff, we protect the rights of Texans in the criminal justice system in Harris County and across the state of Texas. If your probation officer has filed a motion to revoke probation against you, we may be able to help.
What Constitutes a Probation Violation in Texas?
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 from 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 Houston probation violation lawyer who is experienced in these specific matters. 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.
