A court appointed Texas attorney representing my friend offered him probation in exchange for an admission of guilt in a case in Texas. The court date is not until next month but in the meantime, he got into a different kind of trouble in Georgia. I'm wondering if either of the 2 states can claim violation of probation even though the probation has not been decided by the Texas judge as of yet; in which case, he may be better off not entering the guilty plea in the Texas case. Can he instantly be guilty of probation violation the minute the plea is entered? I would guess it depends on when probation begins: from the time of the crime, or the time the judge gives the probation decision. Court in Ga. is pending as well. Your thoughts are much appreciated whether you are a Texas or Ga. atty!
