the court that sentenced him, and therefore that court's state has jurisdiction over him. Sounds like TX has got priority over him.

I agree with Mr. Ferguson. The sentencing state has the jurisdiction. Depending on the violation the new state may also have jurisdiction (i.e. a new offense committed in the new state forms the basis of the violation of the terms and conditions of probation.) Good Luck
