Hiring Jeff Kennedy turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Mr. Kennedy was able to have my case dismissed. Yes, outright dismissal of the charge!

A.C.

We did exactly as Jeff instructed and the case was dismissed. There are no words to explain how happy we are with his performance.

Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

Tarrant County Probation Lawyer

Violating your probation grant is a serious matter, but a Tarrant County community supervision attorney may be able to help. Your freedom is on the line, so call us today.

Being on probation isn’t an experience anyone wants to endure. Your every move is scrutinized, you must report to your probation officer, all your probation obligations must be met, and you need to hold down a job. It can get overwhelming, and you may slip up.

If you’ve violated your probation, a Tarrant County probation lawyer can help. When you don’t follow all your probation requirements, your probation officer can file a petition to revoke your probation.

If you obtain new charges while on community supervision, the court will be even stricter on you than it would be with someone who’s not on probation. You may need an attorney beside you to tell your side of the story.

Common Probation Violations in Tarrant County

When you are placed on deferred adjudication or probation in Tarrant County, you are being given a chance to prove yourself to the court before going to prison.

If you do well, you can avoid prison entirely. If you fail to complete your probation grant successfully, you can still be sent to prison on the original charge that got you placed on probation in the first place.

Below are some of the ways a probationer can violate his or her probation grant:

  • Failure to report
  • Failure to pay fines and fees
  • Missed or positive drug tests
  • Failure to complete community service
  • Failure to complete court-ordered treatment
  • New charges
  • Associating with criminals or those engaged in criminal activity

How Can a Lawyer Help with a Tarrant County Probation Violation?

Violating your community supervision is bad, but it’s not the end of the line yet. The court can decide whether to give you another chance (reinstate your probation), or it can decide to revoke your probation and send you to jail or prison.

What your probation attorney in Tarrant County can do is demonstrate to the court that you should get another chance to complete your probation grant. To do that, you and your attorney will work together to show that any probation violations you had were minor and that it’s in the best interest of the community to keep you out of jail.

The following are some of the ways your lawyer can help you avoid probation revocation:

  • Get you released from jail before your revocation hearing
  • Get your hearing pushed back to give you time to prove to the judge that you can be successful on probation.
  • Document and highlight all your successes on probation
  • Mitigate your probation violations
  • If you’re charged with a new crime, defend you against conviction for that offense
  • Persuade the court to give you another chance at probation
