San Antonio Probation Violations Attorney

Motion to Revoke Probation (MTR)

At the Law Office of Juan Carlos Hernández, we handle a wide variety of matters pertaining to criminal defense, including probation violations.  If you or someone you love has been accused of violating probation, your freedom and your future are both at risk.  Criminal defense attorney Juan Carlos Hernández represents clients in the San Antonio area who are facing charges from violating their probation and he has the knowledge, skill, and experience necessary to effectively defend against these allegations.

When a person receives probation as part of their sentence after being convicted of a criminal offense, they must abide by the terms of release.  If a probation officer or parole officer believes that you have violated any part of your probation, they may ask the court to issue a warrant for your arrest.  Common probation violations include:

  • Failing a UA or drug test
  • Being charged with a new criminal offense
  • Failing to pay court-ordered fines
  • Failing to pay court-ordered restitution
  • Not remaining in contact with probation or parole officials

Proactive Steps and Representation at Motion to Revoke Hearings

If you know that you are in violation, San Antonio Probation Lawyer Juan Carlos Hernández will immediately take proactive steps to defend your freedom. Mr. Hernández will speak to the judge about setting a bond so that you won't be taken to jail while awaiting your hearing. Mr. Hernández will also approach the court for an MTR hearing before the sentencing judge where he will argue for a second chance at your probation in order to keep you from being sentenced to prison.

Mr. Hernández will contact your probation officer and advise you of the necessary steps you will need to put yourself in a better position before your probation violation hearing. For example, by entering drug or alcohol treatment, completing community service hours, paying fines or restitution. He will also offer alternatives to revocation (submitting to regular drug tests, serving a small amount of jail time) to the judge in lieu of serving your full jail or prison term.

If you or a loved one has been accused of or arrested for violating your probation or any other criminal offense, respectfully assert your right to remain silent and CONTACT the Law Office of San Antonio Probation Lawyer Juan Carlos Hernández immediately for a free consultation and review of your legal rights!
