Motion to Revoke and Motion to Adjudicate
When your probation officer feels that you violated the terms of your probation, he or she can ask the court to issue a warrant for your arrest. Your failure to abide by these terms may lead to formal parole and/or probation revocation charges. Often you will be held without bail until your sentencing judge can hear your case. You need to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer to defend you against these serious charges.
In many instances, people do not intentionally violate the terms of their probation or parole. It is our job to convince the court that your violation was not willful or intentional.
Early Termination of Probation
Nearly 2 million Texans have accepted deferred adjudication judgments for misdemeanors and felony arrests and many more Texans have accepted regular or “straight” probation for misdemeanors and felony arrests. Many believe that once the probation period is over and the charge dismissed that it will not be on their record. Unfortunately this is not the case: the arrest, court and the judgment remains on your record and available to the public to view. Even if you received a deferred adjudication judgment, you record remains public unless you are granted a Petition for Non-Disclosure through the Courts.
Early Termination of deferred adjudication is the first step in clearing your record and paving the way for your records to be sealed.
Working to clear your criminal record is valuable for any number of reasons. It affects your ability to find and keep a good job, get a certification/re-certification, rent an apartment, get a mortgage or any other type of loan or gain acceptance to school. Your record will influence any future criminal case you might be unfortunate enough to have filed against you. Certain convictions can increase what you pay for life and health insurance.
