Motions to Revoke Probation Overview
If an offender is placed on community supervision (probation) or deferred adjudication, they are expected to follow a specific and strict set of rules. Failure to do so can result in a warrant being issued for their arrest. At that point, the government must only convince the judge of a single violation by a preponderance of the evidence and the offender could be sentenced to jail or prison.
Sometimes, violations are substantive in nature (i.e. a new offense was allegedly committed by the probationer). Other times, violations are technical in nature (i.e. a probationer is habitually late in performing community service or paying fees). Either type of violation could land the offender in jail or prison.
