Motions to Revoke Probation in San Antonio, TX
San Antonio Criminal Lawyer: Severity of Violating Probation Terms
In many criminal cases, probation or community supervision as it is formally known may be an option for sentencing as opposed to jail time. However, if there is a possible violation of your probation terms, you may be facing a Motion to Revoke Probation (MTRP) hearing. This can be a very serious matter. If your probation is revoked as a result of an MTRP, you could be facing a conviction, extended jail time, and/or imprisonment. Your rights are very limited when it comes to a probation (MTRP) hearing and you will need the help of an experienced attorney. To explore your options further, you should contact an educated attorney.
Less Evidence Requires to Revoke Probation in a MTRP Hearing
In a jury trial, evidence that shows your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt must be presented by the state. In a Motion to Revoke Probation hearing, this is not the case and much less evidence is required to revoke your probation and send you to jail or prison. The good news is that you are always entitled to a hearing before your probation can be revoked. A skilled San Antonio criminal lawyer can explore the extenuating circumstances that may have led to a probation violation, or the allegation of one, and can defend your interests at an MTRP hearing. There may be other options available to the court besides revocation, such as denying the motion and being continued on probation, counseling, extending the term of probation, boot camp, and several others.
