Probation Violations and Revocations
If the government is accusing you of violating the terms of your probation or deferred adjudication, you could be facing very severe penalties, including jail time. At any time, the Court can issue a warrant for your arrest if any violation is reported or alleged to the Judge/ Court by your probation officer. If you have failed to report to your probation officer, failed to pay your fines/fees, had a positive drug test, or have absconded for several months, there is more than likely a warrant out for your arrest and it is very important for you to contact a criminal defense attorney to handle your motion to revoke or motion to adjudicate case. An attorney can make arrangements with the prosecutors and the court to turn you in, so that a hearing can be scheduled to discuss your case. By coming forward with an attorney, it will appear better to the court that you voluntarily turn yourself in, rather than wait to get arrested on a warrant. It is only after you have turned yourself in that an attorney can even discuss bond issues or your case with the prosecutor and the court.
If after a hearing, the violation is found to be true by the Court, the Judge can make a choice to keep you on probation or deferred adjudication, or send you to the county jail or the state penitentiary. Therefore, it is very important for you to obtain a knowledgeable and aggressive attorney who is able to effectively represent you and protect your rights in your motion to revoke probation or motion to adjudicate hearing.
