Motion to Revoke Probation (MTR)
When the court charges you with violating the terms of your release, it can hold you in custody until your matter can be heard by the court. Furthermore, a revoked probation can send you back to jail for years.

Defending the Freedom of People in Probation Violation Hearings
If you received probation (also called community supervision), parole or deferred adjudication, you must abide by the terms of your release. If your probation or parole officer feels that you have violated those conditions, he or she may ask the court to issue a warrant for your arrest.
It is important to remember that it is more difficult to defend probation violation charges the more violations you receive. That being said, attorney Patrick L. Hancock can defend you against a number of probation or parole violations including:
- Failing a UA or drug test
- Being charged with a new criminal offense
- Failing to pay court-ordered fines
- Failing to pay court-ordered restitution
- Not remaining in contact with probation or parole officials
Patrick L. Hancock will also represent you in bond or motion to revoke probation hearings in courts in and around San Antonio. He makes sure the court hears your side of the story and considers giving you a second chance. Many violations are the result of a miscommunication or a misunderstanding between you and your probation officer. He will attempt to convince the court to reconsider the termination of your probation or parole.
