Criminal Lawyer Serving San Antonio and Texas
Motions to revoke probation, or MTRs, are written instructions, from your probation officer to a court of law, to send you back to jail or prison, and a very real threat to your liberty. Oftentimes, this sentence has a portion of itself that hangs over your head until probation is finished. If you are out of jail/prison, and pick up another charge while you are on probation, then your probation officer may file an MTR.

In Texas, if you are on probation or deferred adjudication and the court files a motion to revoke, a warrant will be issued for your arrest. The paperwork is sent to court when a motion to revoke probation is filed. Based on the parole officer’s observations, these documents will describe in detail what happened, where, and when a probation violation occurred. Then, you’ll be arrested and taken to jail. You’ll bond out, and then you’ll have a hearing to determine whether the judge will remove your probation or deferred adjudication.
In these cases, our attorney understands the complexities of probation violation defense. It can be even more difficult when a new criminal offense is committed while being arrested for an alleged probation violation.
Do you believe a motion to revoke will be filed against you because you committed a new offense, failed to report, or tested positive for alcohol or drugs while on probation?
You can contact our attorney at The Law Office of E.R. Báez. Our attorney has extensive experience in this area, as well as matters that involve a motion to revoke bond and a motion to revoke parole. Mr. Báez can speak with the judge to see if the motion to revoke can be withdrawn. If they are unable to withdraw it, he will attempt to arrange your placement in a satellite office which means the processing to get you booked and out will take about two hours, as opposed to all day if you are arrested and taken to jail.
At your hearing, Mr. Báez will speak with probation to see if it can be resolved without them revoking your probation or deferring it, which is often the case for minimal violations such as missing an appointment or committing a minor offense.
In most cases, however, the state will not attempt to revoke your probation if the only allegation you committed a new criminal offense. They don’t want to try that new offense in a motion to revoke, so they usually put it off until there is resolution to the new offense. In any case, its always advised to speak to an experienced lawyer in San Antonio right away.
