Houston Probation Revocation – Violations Defense Lawyer
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 . Incarceration . The addition of new probation conditions
Violations do not have to be major violations such as getting arrested for a new offense, a simple act of neglecting to report to a probation meeting, failing to register for a class or not completing the required number of community service hours per month can cause the probation officer to file a Motion to Revoke Probation against you.
The Judges and probation officers take Probation Revocations very seriously. If a motion to revoke has been filed against your or someone you know, you need an aggressive lawyer fighting hard for you. Bond is not automatic, we can get you a bond if you have been arrested or have turned yourself in.
We are committed to protecting the rights of people charges with probation violations, and have the experience and in-depth knowledge of the court system to give you the best chance of keeping your probation and keeping your freedom.
