The defendant with a felony mtr warrant needs a criminal defense lawyer. Generally, one of the best things a person can do for a loved one in jail on any sort of a felony warrant is to arrange for representation by a reputable criminal defense lawyer.

When a defendant agrees to probration, he agrees to comply with 100% of the requirements, which often include classes. While a missed class on a first Motion to revoke is less likely to result in revocation or prison then a new offense or using drugs, it is a legal possibility. When I work with MTR clients here in the San Antonio area, I routinely recommend that their family try to bond them out, and then we use the time that I am able to get for them to make up whatever has been lacking in their probation (hours, classes, payments, etc.). Every situation is different, and so I would welcome the chance to talk to you directly (at no charge to you). Please consider giving us a call today.

You need to consult with a lawyer familiar with the court. Failure to comply with ANY of the conditions of probation can result in a motion to revoke probation, or a motion to adjudicate a deferred. Whether someone is reovoked depends on that particular court's tolerance of concompliance or violations. A good lawyer who is wiling to listen to you is the best defense. If you cannot afford one, the court will appoint one for him.
