When the terms of probation are violated,
the probation office takes action through the prosecutors representing the state of Texas.
Their first step is to file a Motion to Revoke Probation followed by issuing an arrest
warrant. The defendant is then taken into custody and held unless he or she can be released on
The Blue Warrant
If the offender violated Texas probation laws, a
parole revocation warrant, known as a blue warrant, is issued and the parolee is arrested and incarcerated without
the possibility for release on bond. In both cases, the next step is a hearing to
establish the evidence that probation or parole was violated.
The courts tend not to be lenient with technical violators, those who violate
probation or parole rules, but there are a variety of measures that they can impose including the
Incarceration for the remainder of the original sentence or extended jail
Electronic surveillance and house detention
Mental health treatment
