Fort Worth Probation Violation Lawyer
If you have been convicted on a criminal matter, and to avoid jail you have been placed on probation, then as part of your “contract” with the judge you will be required to fulfill certain requirements and live within prescribed restrictions. If you then fail to honor these requirements your probation officer may place you in breach of your agreement, and you will then face the possibility of being accused of probation violations.
If you are accused of a probation violation then you are in a particularly serious situation, and should treat it as such. It could very quickly lead to a motion to revoke your probation, and then the issue of a warrant for your arrest. If arrested on a probation violation matter, you could be held without bail, and then sent to jail by the judge.
