What is a motion to revoke probation? If you or someone you love was sentenced to probation or community supervision and you’ve recently found out that the State of Texas has filed a Motion to Revoke Probation or Motion to Enter an Adjudication of Guilt, it’s imperative that you talk to an experienced defense lawyer who can help you protect your freedom.
What Is a Motion to Revoke Probation?
A Motion to Revoke Probation (MTR) is a motion filed by the State of Texas against an individual who is sentenced to probation or community supervision. If the State successfully argues their motion, you could be sent to jail or prison.
How Will a Motion to Revoke Probation Hurt Me if I Have a Misdemeanor?
Although a misdemeanor is considered the least serious of criminal acts, that doesn’t mean that a Motion to Revoke Probation hearing is something you can take lightly. You can still have your probation or community service revoked and be put in jail.

In addition to implementing the best possible defense for your circumstances, a San Antonio Motion to Revoke Probation lawyer can help you argue that other options are better than revoking your probation. Other options that you may qualify for instead of jail or prison time include an extension of the time that you’re on probation, additional fines, court ordered counseling, attending a “boot camp” program, and substance abuse counseling.
