Attorney Kevin Stouwie chooses to focus his law practice on representing Texas prison inmates seeking early release through parole because he believes people can learn from past mistakes and society as a whole benefits when former inmates receive opportunities to build new lives.

Understanding Texas Probation Laws in Order to Avoid Problems

If you or a loved one has recently been placed on probation, it can either be regular probation or "deferred adjudication" probation.

  • PROBATION VIOLATIONS - Texas judges have broad powers to impose probation conditions they think are appropriate to protect the community and rehabilitate the defendant. As a result, understanding the specific conditions the court has placed upon you is your first step to avoiding probation violations in the future.

  • REVOCATION AND OTHER CONSEQUENCES - The consequences of probation violation can vary based on the situation but can include the modification or extension of probation as well as the revocation of probation and the incarceration of the defendant.

  • TYPES OF PROBATION - Probation is a flexible system. Different types of probation exist for different types of crimes and defendants. The type of probation you have been granted can greatly affect the conditions to which you must adhere as well as the consequences for violating them.

WHAT TEXAS PROBATION LAWS MEAN TO YOU

Understanding Your Obligations During a Supervised Sentence

If you have been convicted of a crime in Texas and received probation instead of a prison sentence, consider yourself fortunate. However, if you consider probation to be "getting off easy", you are making a big mistake. Probation in Texas is a big commitment and failing to take your probation seriously can ultimately mean ending up in prison, sometimes with a lengthier sentence than you would have received by simply getting a prison sentence in the first place. Therefore, if you are on probation and are uncertain about your obligations and limitations, you can help yourself by asking to meet your assigned probation officer and expressing a sincere desire to do everything you can to stay out of trouble.  Probation violations often result in revocation, and incarceration.  We help our clients make parole, which is very similar in many ways to probation.
