A Motion to Revoke Probation (MTR) can occur when an individual who has been placed on probation violates a term or a condition of his or her probation. If an individual violates a term of her probation, the probation officer typically files a violation report with the court. Once this violation report has been reviewed by the district attorney’s office, a MTR is prepared and subsequently signed by the judge. Once a Motion to Revoke Probation has been signed by the judge, an arrest warrant is activated for that individual. The individual is then arrested and given a court date where the prosecutor will present the allegations supporting the MTR.
If you have had a Motion to Revoke Probation filed against you contact us immediately. You are entitled to have an attorney represent you at your MTR hearing. At Joyner + Joyner, our goal is to advocate on your behalf so the court agrees to continue your probation instead of incarcerating you.
Our attorneys have successfully represented many clients at MTR hearing in both County and District Courts. Upon hiring us, we will attempt to get a bond set on your behalf so that you can continue your life while waiting for your revocation hearing instead of sitting in jail. We will confer with both the probation department and the district attorney’s office to resolve your revocation hearing while protecting your rights.
At Joyner + Joyner, P.C., we offer our clients the most comprehensive representation possible. Part of this comprehensive representation is the ability to post bonds for our clients. We understand that you have many choices when selecting a bondsman and it is a decision that cannot be taken lightly.
If someone you know is in jail in San Antonio or anywhere else in Bexar County, contact our San Antonio Bond Attorneys for jail release.
By hiring our San Antonio Bond Lawyers, we will also become the attorney on record for that case. Therefore, we are both your attorney and your bondsman. As your attorney, we are able to advocate on your behalf and request the court for a reduction in your bond amount.
Additionally, by serving as your attorney and bondsman, we are able to offer rates that are oftentimes lower than the rates offered by a bondsman who is not your attorney.
When you are arrested, there are three common options you can choose in order to be released from custody. You can post a cash bond, a surety bond (commonly referred to as a bail bond), or you can be released on your own recognizance.
A cash bond, requires that you post the full cash amount of the bond. For example, if you are being held on a $50,000 bond, you would be required to post the full $50,000 in cash as a promise that you will appear at your next court setting.
A surety bond (bail bond), allows you to pay the bail premium to a lawyer or bondsman instead of the full bail amount. For example, if the bail amount is $50,000, the bail premium typically charged is 10% of the bail amount. In this case, $50,000 x 10% = $5,000. Even thought you do not have to pay the full bail amount, the bail premium is not returned to you by the surety.
In some instances, it may be possible for your to be released on own recognizance. This type of bond is dependent on the specific circumstances surrounding your case. If you are approved for a personal recognizance bond (P.R. Bond) you will be released from custody without the requirement of having to post bail.
