If you voluntarily revoke, the judge can sentence you up to the maximum punishment under the original plea agreement. You may be able to reach an agreement with the DA for a lesser sentence. Otherwise, it will be the judge's decision.

You need an experienced Williamson County Attorney. I have been practicing in Williamson County for 20 years and I have been able to negotiate deals for less than the maximum. What you are looking at depends on the judge and how well that you have been doing.
