What To Do When Facing A Violation of Probation
If you have broken the terms of your probation order, or community supervision order, then you could face penalties and time in prison. If it was a minor violation, then you may face manageable consequences from your probation officer. A serious violation can cause the district attorney to file a motion to revoke your probation, which will lead to a warrant for your arrest. This could lead to serious consequences, including long-term imprisonment. It is important to get assistance from a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney when facing a violation of probation in Sherman.
