Probation, Revocations & Violations
If you or a family member are currently on probation or deferred adjudication, you are never more than a mistake away from a Motion to Revoke or a Motion to Adjudicate being filed against you.
People on probation (deferred or straight) face a variety of conditions to which they must adhere. The State must prove you violated the terms of your probation by Clear and Convincing Evidence – a lower standard than Beyond a Reasonable Doubt.
If the court finds you to be in violation of your probation, they can impose serious penalties on you. These penalties may include:
- Revocation of your probation
- The addition of new probation conditions
