Deferred Adjudication – Motion to Adjudicate

In Texas, there are two different types of probation: deferred adjudication and community supervision. Under deferred adjudication, you will usually plead either “guilty” or “no contest” and then the judge “defers” your finding of guilt until after the probation period. Since you have not been convicted, if you violate probation while on deferred adjudication, you may be given the full range of punishment for the original crime. The document that starts this process is called a Motion to Adjudicate Guilt.

Community Supervision – Motion to Revoke

Under community supervision (also called straight probation), you have either plead guilty or have been found guilty after a trial. Since there has already been a finding of guilt if you violate probation while on community supervision, you can only receive the punishment that was originally given to you. When this happens, a Motion to Revoke Probation will be filed.

In Texas, the prosecution has to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt at trial. However, for a probation violation, the prosecution must only prove it by a preponderance of the evidence. This is a lower burden for the government to meet. If you are facing a probation violation for a misdemeanor or felony charge, you need a criminal defense lawyer who will push back against the prosecutor’s evidence and work to get you the best result. At Smith & Vinson Law Firm we start working for you from the moment you come on board as a client.
