Criminal Defense Lawyer in Collin County, Texas, Handling Probation Violations

Texas courts can revoke or modify the terms of your probation for failing to comply with a wide range of requirements. I understand that many people do not intentionally commit probation violations. Mistakes can simply happen. I defend clients facing the following probation violation allegations:

  • Not reporting to their probation officer
  • Arrests for a new crime
  • Illegal possession of a firearm
  • Avoiding or failing routine drug tests
  • Failing to complete mandatory counseling or classes
  • Failing to finish community service
  • Failing to register as a sex offender
  • Non-payment of fees

At the request of a probation officer who believes you are guilty of a probation violation, a Texas court will issue a warrant for your arrest. Unlike your original trial, you have no right to a jury and the prosecution does not have to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. You will could be held without bail until sentencing.

I know there are typically simple explanations involved in probation violations. I will meet with you to discuss your available options and determine the best course of action for proving your innocence.
