The revocation of probation can mean the difference between freedom and incarceration. Having quality legal representation is a precaution against having one’s probation revoked. If you or a loved one reside in Houston or Harris County, and are facing revocation proceedings, then it is important that counsel be contacted immediately.
Houston attorney who understands the process of probation revocation
The revocation is a multi-step process. If a person on probation is charged with a new crime then they will likely be facing what is called a “Revocation Proceeding.” The first step is for the Court to schedule the proceeding. Prior to the hearing, the Department of Parole and Probation will issue a report to the Judge stating its opinion as to whether probation should be revoked. It is important to know that the report is not the final say; the Judge will have discretion as to whether or not probation should remain in place, be modified, or be revoked.
