Motion to Adjudicate Guilt Texas

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.

Motion to Revoke Probation Texas

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.

Hear What They Have to Say

  • 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!”

  • Exceptionally versed in the intricacies of Texas criminal law

    “Having never been exposed to the criminal system, hiring an attorney was daunting task. Attorney Brad Vinson was informative, professional yet sympathetic with his approach to my case. Mr. Vinson was open to opinion and ensured that all legal avenues were considered and addressed before presenting a course of action. Ultiamtely, Mr. Vinson was able to negotiate a reasonable settlement dispite many hoops and hurdles presented by the prosecuting county. I would highly recommend Smith and Vinson for representation in a criminal matter.”

  • 5 Stars in making me feel like a top priority!

    “Jarrod Smith of Smith and Vinson Law Firm provided me with the best service I could have possibly asked for. Having no background in law and finding myself in a situation that left me feeling extremely vulnerable, I felt quickly at ease in their care. They were very reasonable with my situation and helped work around my needs in providing me the most support and information on how to best handle my case. I'd recommend this firm to anyone seeking help with a traffic violation of any kind. I feel that if it weren't for them I would have been heavily misguided and probably would not have made it through the system with the best possible outcome for me. 5 Stars for their service, generosity, and in making me feel like a top priority!”
