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.

    “I would love to add my thanks and heart felt appreciation for the help that your law firm provided me. Before I met you guys my situation looked very bleak and quite honestly your dedication to my case really carried over this past year and the reward was not only one felony dismissal but two. Thank you from the Ramirez family, I will always be great full and you guys have earned a spot in my family. For anyone reading, this firm is second to NON, they know what there talking about and do exactly what they promise to do. Very professional, on time and and educate you along the whole process. I had alot to lose and you guys gave it all back to me and finally represented what true Justice is here in America. God bless you both and God bless your firm”

    Ronald D.

  • Professional representation at its best!

    “First and foremost, I would like to thank Brad and Jarrod for handling my case. Both of these men represented with much professionalism and didn't at all treat me like a criminal. At times I was skeptical since I was facing so much uncertainty. Both men obviously could not predict the outcome of things, but assured me that they will work hard for me. They sure kept their promise on that! Both men took the time to get to know me and my situation before designing a plan to represent me. When I was in doubt with much fear they reassured me that "things will be all right". I am grateful for the representation both men have provided me and without hesitation I would speak volumes of their service. Thank you so much!”

    “Brad is such a joy to work with. I have consulted with Brad on many criminal issues in the past. He dedicates due diligence and passion to every element of each issue. He likes to see that defendants are treated fairly and does everything in his power to arrive at the best possible resolution. Anyone that has Brad on their side can take comfort in knowing that all avenues to good solution will be exhausted.”

  • Great service

    “After a referral from another attorney, I'm glad that I choose Jarrod and Brad. They lead me to the process and answered all my questions that I had and navigating through the process. I knew after I first meant them in person I knew they we're going to fight and I got the result that I was happy with at the end. I would recommend if anything ever happens to anyone. Thank you guys for your work!”
