Someone I know is in jail for having a second MTR and it was for not reporting to his probation officer, along with not turning himself in when he had a warrant out for his arrest. His first offense was a 3rd degree felony for family violence in 2011, and served 4 months in jail. When he was released, he was sentenced to 4 years probation. Last year he had his first MTR. It was extended for another year, and he was sent to a treatment facility for 90 days. The 2nd MTR was also a felony, and was sentenced to 2 years prison time. Does he still have to serve out the entire sentence for the 2nd MTR, or will the parole officer contact me because of the offense that happened 5 years ago and ask me if I wanted him to be released sooner?
Did he ever get revoked on the first one and sentenced to prison? How much time? Did the sentences run concurrently?
Easiest way to find out is to go to TDCJ website and it will tell you when he'll probably get out. It is very UNLIKELY that anyone will contact you about his parole.
