Plano, Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers
If you violate probation, you can be arrested and held without bond until your hearing. At your hearing, the judge can sentence you to jail or prison for the length of your probation or for the length of the sentence you would have received if convicted. Clearly, this is a serious situation that requires assistance from a criminal defense attorney. Do not try to represent yourself.

We Will Fight for Your Freedom
You can be in violation of your probation for a number of reasons, including:
- Drug test failure
- Not reporting to your probation officer
- Committing a new crime
- Not completing your community service
Probation revocation hearings are decided by a judge, not a jury. The standard of proof is lower than it is in a criminal trial. That means it is easier for the prosecution to convict you.
However, you still have the right to an attorney, to confront witnesses and to present testimony in your defense. We have experience with revocation hearings and know how to defend you. We will negotiate with probation officers, prosecutors and the judge to find alternatives to jail time.
