This topic is going to be broken into two parts. This part is going to deal with felony probation violation in Texas. The next part is going to deal with misdemeanor probation violation in Texas. Felonies are the more serious offenses in Texas. These can range from 6 months in State Jail up to life in prison. I’m sure you have some questions already.

Length of Probation and Early Termination

Length of Probation and Early Termination

Attorney Marsh

I know that I’ve written over and over about the role of plea bargains and probation in the criminal justice system. One post that sums it up nicely is 3 Ways Your Criminal Case Can End.

Not all probation is the same. Normally, you’re placed on probation because of an agreement between you and the State. This is a part of the plea bargain. In exchange for your plea of guilty, your sentence will be probated as part of your plea bargain. As with everything else, Probation comes with terms and condition. What are the “normal”…

Types of Probation in Texas

Attorney Marsh

Probation in Texas Criminal Cases A lot of clients come into my office and ask me about probation and their criminal cases. The technical term for probation has been changed to “Community Supervision.” There are two types of probation in Texas. These are a “straight probation” or a Deferred Adjudication. The type of probation you receive depends largely on your plea agreement or the Judge’s decision following a jury trial. Each type of probation has its own pros and cons. Probation, Community Supervision, and Straight Probation All of these names mean the same thing. Probation is when your jail/prison sentence…
