Are you on felony or misdemeanor probation in Tarrant County? Has the State filed a Motion to Adjudicate or a Motion to Revoke? If so, then you need an experienced Fort Worth criminal lawyer to help. When you are facing a revocation in Tarrant County, then you are looking at a number of different outcomes:
1. Your probation is revoked/adjudicated. If this happens, you will facing a final felony or misdemeanor conviction and jail, state jail, or penitentiary time (depending on your degree of offense).
2. Your probation is amended, meaning that you get to stay on probation, but the terms of probation have changed (for example, maybe the judge extends probation by a year, or places you in a drug rehabilitation facility (IDT, ISF, SAFPF) or puts you on a cognitive treatment plan).
3. Your probation gets reinstated.
A Fort Worth criminal lawyer can help you investigate the allegations on the petition and advocate on your behalf. For example, today, I represented a client in Tarrant County who had been placed on probation for credit/debit care abuse, a state jail felony. The State filed a Motion to Adjudicate and was seeking to convict them and sentence them to state jail time. After investigation and negotiation, we were able to get our client reinstated.
