Violating a probation condition in Texas can lead to serious consequences. There are two types of probations which individuals can be placed on: straight probation and deferred adjudication. If you have been placed on straight probation it is already is a conviction, meaning that the court has great power to determine what should take place if you fail to complete the conditions that you promised to follow. Deferred adjudication means the court will dismiss the charges against you if you successfully complete all the conditions of probation.
