The Gilbert G. Garcia Law Firm can assist in filing a formal motion to the court for a modification of certain condition(s) of probation (community supervision).
Before any sentence, term, or condition of probation/community supervision is modified, a hearing is usually held in open court before the Judge.
The rules for a modification hearing are as follows:
- The prosecution must generally be given a written notice and an opportunity to be heard on the matter in which they may voice their opposition.
- If the sentence, term, or condition of probation is modified, the judge must go on the record and state the reasons for the modification.
Orders modifying probation will not usually be without written notice of the intention to modify the order is not first given to the proper probation officer.
- It is during these hearings that Mr. Garcia may argue on your behalf for a probation modification.
