Probation is a type of sentence that may be imposed on a convicted criminal. It allows you to remain in the community, provided you follow certain terms and conditions. Since probation is a temporary order, it can be taken away if you don’t follow these conditions, or if you commit a new offense during the period of probation.

What Is The Probation Revocation Process?
In Texas, probation revocation is started by the probation officer’s faith that an infringement or probation violation deserving revocation has taken place. If or when a revocation hearing is planned, it is the probationer’s entitlement to testify for him or herself, and to bring in his or her own witnesses and have an attorney in attendance. Most jurisdictions offer the individual the right to selected counsel.
It is very important to select a highly qualified and experienced lawyer to act as your advocate in this process, because having your probation revoked may mean that you will have to return to jail, or even enter jail for the first time. Whether your original charges were violent crimes or sex crimes, I have the experience to represent you effectively.
