Sandy, TX asked in Criminal Law and Domestic Violence for Texas

Q: My husband is going to court in willco tx on tues for an MRP. I know the max is one year what will he most likely get?

My husband has 2 misdemeanor charges assault family violence and interfering with an emergency call. He has never been in trouble before or since this. He was given pretrial diversion for 6 months but failed to do any of his stuff except report to his PO each month, they then gave him 12months probabtion and he did the same thing. Then he got a 3 month extension (more of the same). A warrant was issued for his arrest he was arrested about 6 weeks ago. and this is his court date coming up, he has managed to complete 15 hrs of his 80 community service hours since then and has been attending his BIPP classes regularly. He has not gotten in any trouble while on probation the revocations is due to failure to comply im just wondering what we can anticipate the sentence being. I realize the max is a year and the least is just reinstate his original probation but I imagine it will be neither of those. Just wondering what the average sentence for this would be, no promises I know

A: The question is contingent on the county and the judge. An experienced lawyer in one county can have an idea of what would happen, but in another county, the variables change. You really need to know the judge and county and then find a lawyer familiar with probation revocation hearings in that court under that specific judge to have a good idea.
