Probation Attorneys in Midland, TX
Probation (also known as “community supervision”) is a form of criminal justice supervision in which a person convicted of a crime is released from prison and placed under court-ordered monitoring, typically with various conditions that they must follow. Failure to follow any of the conditions established by the court can be considered a violation of your probationary terms, which could result in further legal action.
The following are common examples of probation conditions:
- Community service
- Drug or alcohol testing
- Drug or alcohol counseling/treatment programs
- Enrolling in and completing college courses
- Maintaining employment
- Maintaining lawful behavior
- Meeting with a probation officer
- Residential limitations

Courts may issue probation as an alternative to jail time, especially for first-time offenders or others who have committed non-violent or relatively minor misdemeanor or felony offenses. To even be considered for probation, a court must agree that you are unlikely to violate any conditions placed upon you. In some cases, people may acquire employment or complete coursework during their probationary terms.
Common violations include failure to meet with a probation officer, using drugs or alcohol, leaving the jurisdiction without permission, and committing new offenses. Probation officers may report any violations to the court. Afterward, the court may issue a “Motion to Revoke Probation” on behalf of the State. If successful, this motion could lead to an arrest and incarceration. Ultimately, it is up to the judge to decide whether or not to revoke your probation based on the report and evidence brought forth by your probation officer.
