Many people find after being placed on court ordered probation that the terms of that probation become so burdensome that the probation becomes entirely unworkable. It has become quite common that even the most minor violation leads to modification of probation and the addition of conditions that were never bargained for. Probation officers have great power. They also have the authority of the trial court to back any conditions imposed on a probationer.

Felony Probation Violation
If you received probation on your case, then you were either given deferred adjudication probation or regular probation. Violation of your felony deferred adjudication can lead to adjudication, final conviction, a permanent felony criminal record, and even prison time. A benefit of being placed on deferred adjudication probation is the opportunity to avoid a final felony conviction if you are able to successfully complete your probation. If, however, you are accused of a felony probation violation of your deferred adjudication, then the full range of punishment for the offense is available to the trial court judge. You can be revoked and receive up to the maximum sentence for your offense.
Penalties for Felony Deferred Adjudication Probation Revocation:
- 1st Degree Felony: 5 - 99 years or life in prison
- 2nd Degree Felony: 2 - 20 years in prison
- 3rd Degree Felony: 2 - 10 years in prison
- State Jail Felony: 180 days - 2 years in state jail
A criminal defense attorney experienced in defending felony probation violations may be able to stop your probation revocation so that you can successfully complete your deferred adjudication and avoid conviction.

A misdemeanor probation violation can also carry serious penalties. Most misdemeanor probations, other than DWI, are deferred adjudications.

Other Penalties for Probation Revocation
If the violation of your felony deferred adjudication leads to conviction of your offense, you will lose the ability to request a Non-Disclosure in order to seal your case. While not all deferred adjudications can be sealed by Non-Disclosure, those that can be sealed require successful completion of the deferred adjudication. An experienced Felony Probation Violation Attorney may be able to successfully fight your probation violation and help you avoid revocation.
