Criminal probation can take the form of deferred-adjudication probation or straight probation, also referred to as “community supervision.” This is an alternative to jail or prison time. Deferred-adjudication probation means that the charges will be dismissed upon the successful completion of your probation. Straight probation means you were found guilty. With either kind of probation, jail or prison time always remains a possibility if you violate your terms and conditions.
Both types of probation may require several court-ordered conditions, and failure to comply with the terms of probation will likely land you in jail. It is best to consult an experienced lawyer if you have violated your terms of community supervision or probation. Always seek the advice of an attorney before admitting to any violations. You may have defenses and grounds to fight your probation revocation. To discuss your probation issues, call us today.
