Second and Third-Degree Felonies

A felony is the most serious type of crime that person can commit. Felonies usually are crimes that seriously threaten human life or property. Felony crimes can carry a sentence or punishment of imprisonment in the State Jail or Texas Department of Corrections for one or more years, payment of fine, or both.

If you are faced with a felony, you should seek immediate legal representation.  Contact The Law Office of R.S. Majeed today for help.

Probation Violations/Revocation Hearing

A probation violation means that you’ve failed to satisfy one or more of the conditions associated with your probation.  Your Probation Officer will then notify the Court of the violation and a warrant may be issued for your arrest.  You will then have a Probation Revocation hearing where the Judge will determine what your punishment should be.  (At a Probation Revocation hearing, the Judge will NOT revisit the facts of your original criminal charge or charges).

You can be placed on two different types of probation in Texas:

  • Deferred Adjudication Probation

  • Regular Probation

 

Deferred Adjudication Probation

Deferred adjudication probation is where the Judge decides not to find you guilty of the offense charged, but instead places you on probation.  Once you have successfully completed the terms and conditions of your probation, then you won’t have a conviction on your criminal record.

Regular Probation

Regular Probation is when the Judge finds you guilty of your offense and places you on probation for a certain number of months or years.  However, once you complete your probation time, the conviction will go on your criminal record immediately.

Probation Violations

Your probation officer can find you in violation of the terms and conditions of your probation.  Some of the most common reasons that cause you to be in violation are:

  • Failing to report monthly to your Probation Officer

  • Failing to timely pay your monthly probation fees

  • Committing a new crime

  • Failing a random urinalysis test

  • Failing to attend your required classes

  • Leaving the county without permission

      Probation Revocation Hearing

At your Probation Revocation hearing, the Judge has the option to continue you on your probation, modify the terms and conditions of your probation, or completely revoke your probation. If the Judge decides to revoke your probation, this can have severe consequences.

Our job at your Probation Revocation hearing is to work with the Court to get you back on probation, so you can successfully complete the terms and conditions of your probation.

Violation of Deferred Adjudication Probation vs Regular Probation

If the Judge revokes your Deferred Adjudication Probation, you can be sentenced anywhere within the range of punishment for the original criminal offense for which you were placed on probation.

If the Judge revokes your Regular Probation, your sentence is limited to the original sentence imposed when you were placed on probation.

If you’re in violation of your probation, contact The Law Office of R.S. Majeed to properly handle your Probation Revocation hearing and help you successfully complete the terms and conditions of your probation.
