Probation Violation Serving Families Throughout Austin

Austin Probation Violation Attorneys

30 Years of Experience Serving Austin

Probation was your second chance – your opportunity to show the judge and a probation officer that you could stay out of trouble and didn’t deserve to be in jail. Mistakes do happen. Maybe you missed an appointment with your probation officer or had one slip-up, and now your second chance is threatened.

You don’t have to spend years in prison because of one mistake. At Carroll Troberman, PLLC, we fight aggressively to protect our clients from jail time. Attorneys Blair Carroll and Meredith “Shelly” Troberman have built strong working relationships with courts, prosecutors, and probation officers in the Austin area and know how to effectively communicate your case.

What Are Probation Violations?

Texas has serious consequences for probation violations. When a court determines that someone has violated their probation, that person may be forced to serve the maximum sentence for the original crime.

Actions that can violate your probation:

  • Failure to appear, usually at court, a mandated-counseling session or a meeting with your probation officer
  • Failure to comply with a court order or order from your probation officer
  • Failure to pay a fine or meet other requirements
  • Committing another crime

What Happens at a Violation of Probation Hearing?

Before a hearing, an incident will take place that your probation officer determines violates the conditions of your probation.

If it is believed that you have violated your probation, one or more of the following may happen:

  • You may receive a warning.
  • You may have a warrant for your arrest.
  • You may have more conditions placed upon your probation.
  • Your probation may be revoked and replaced with jail time.

At the hearing, a criminal defense lawyer can tell your side of the story and defend you against whatever violations you are being accused of. You will not have a jury at this hearing. Proving that a violation took place is not incredibly difficult, as the prosecution only has to show that the violation more likely took place than not. This means that it is extremely important to get legal help as soon as possible.
