Hopefully it's granted

  1. He has to be processed out, but that won't take too long. A person is not penalized for filing a motion for shock probation so more time will not be added if the motion is denied.

  2. If it's granted, he will be released fairly quickly. If it's denied, he's transferred back to TDC to finish serving his original sentence.

    Macy Jaggers's answer to a legal question on Avvo does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Ms. Jaggers offers everyone a free consultation to discuss their case. Feel free to call her office at 214-365-9800 to make an appointment (phones are answered 24 hours) or visit her website at for more information about her services and recent victories.

  3. If a TDC inmate is granted shock probation and has no other holds, typically the inmate is taken back to the county jail, a warrant check is run, and the prisoner is released to serve probation.

    Denial of shock probation does not increase the sentence.
