If you or a loved one is currently on probation or community supervision in Denton or Cooke Counties and a Motion to Revoke or a Motion to Adjudicate has been filed by the State, Gina can help you. Once a Motion like that has been filed a warrant will issue for your arrest. You can be held without bond or a bond can be set. Gina can help you make sure that a bond is set so that you can be released from jail awaiting a hearing before the judge in your case or while she negotiates with the State on your behalf. Gina can also negotiate with the State to keep you out of jail.
Revocation is not the only option.
Your probation can be reinstated, modified or extended depending on your individual circumstances. Reinstatement of your probation is usually the best possible outcome because that means that your probationary term continues as if the Motion to Revoke or Motion to Adjudicate was never filed.
Modification of your probation can also be a good option. Conditions can be added to assuage the concerns of your community supervision officer or the State. Extension of your probationary period is something that Gina can use to negotiate that will allow you to stay out of jail. It is a very good option when the only items on the Motion are monetary. Even if the only option for you is revocation, Gina can help you negotiate the lowest term of confinement in jail or prison. If you are on a regular probation, the maximum time that the judge can sentence you is already determined.
Many times the State will negotiate a lower term of confinement in order to avoid a lengthy hearing. If you are on a deferred adjudication probation, the judge has the full range of punishment at his/her disposal. You need an experienced negotiator and skillful litigator to lessen the term of confinement. Gina is experienced in both negotiation and litigation. Let Gina help you today.
