Probation is ordered by the Texas court system. You are placed on probation when you’ve been found guilty of the commission of a crime. Probation allows you to stay in the community when you’re supervised by a Texas probation officer. However, probation isn’t available for every criminal offense. Some defendants must serve a jail or prison sentence without the possibility of probation. It also depends on the deal that your attorney is able to negotiate on you behalf.
