What is Probation
Community supervision is an alternative to time in a jail or penitentiary. You have pled guilty, nolo contendere, or you were found guilty by a jury. After considering the evidence, the Judge or the jury determined it would be in the best interest of the State of Texas and you to allow you to serve your sentence within the community if you agree to the terms and conditions of community supervision. Community Supervision provides an opportunity for you to make positive changes in many parts of your life so you won’t have to face getting arrested again. It can help your education and employment status, physical and mental health, any abuse of alcohol or other drugs, and even your approach to life. Our goal is not just to get you off probation successfully, but also to help you become a better citizen of the community.
