Dallas Probation Violation Attorney

Have You Been Accused of Violating Your Probation?

Many individuals convicted of a criminal offense will be given probation or parole, either in lieu of harsher sentencing or as part of their overall punishment. Probation, which can range in duration, generally establishes terms and conditions that a convicted offender must comply with while probation is in effect.

These terms and conditions vary from case to case, and will depend on a number of factors, including the crime involved, a person's criminal history, and any other extenuating circumstances. Regardless of the precise terms, all individuals on probation or parole must obey the law and adhere to the conditions established. Should any violations occur, serious criminal repercussions can result.

Examples of Probation Violations

While probation and parole orders may have different terms, most involve a number of restrictions and prohibited conduct.

Some of the most common examples of probation violations include:

  • Committing another crime
  • Failing to report to probation officer as required
  • Failing to attend court dates or hearings
  • Failing to attend or complete mandatory court-ordered classes
  • Failing drug tests
  • Associating with known criminals or involvement in gang activity
  • Failing to pay fines or restitution
  • Leaving jurisdiction without approval

Penalties for Violating Probation

Depending on the original crime and the nature of the probation violation, you could be facing a variety of consequences:

  • Extended probation sentence
  • Revoking of probation
  • Jail time to serve your original sentence
  • Additional fines and penalties

Probation violation cases do not involve a jury trial and are only decided by a judge. Fortunately, you do have an opportunity to defend yourself and contest the violation in a hearing.

The Probation Revocation Hearing

If you are accused of violating probation, you have a right to challenge the case and request a hearing. During the hearing, the state will present evidence of your violation and you will have the opportunity to challenge the prosecutor's arguments. The judge will evaluate both sides and make a decision on whether a violation occurred.

Familiar with the legal motions and filing required, we are prepared to resolve the situation in the most favorable terms possible.
