I am currently on probation in Henderson County in Texas and am looking at moving to Midland Texas for work. My charge is manslaughter (from a car accident I had) i still have a little over 3 years left on my term. Can I transfer?
It depends on the county you are moving to.
In Texas, in order to transfer probation, the receiving county must accept the transfer. They are not legally obligated to accept it, but, in my experience, they usually do.
ok, so no matter the charges
if they accept the transfer its all good
No, the charge does not matter.
Yes, once they accept, you can move as you want.
Does that answer your question?
can the judge i had over my case decline my motion to transfer?
Technically, yes, but I've never seen a judge get involved in a probation transfer.
ok, thank you
If you violate the terms of your probation, you will be returned to his court for the revocation.
right, i understand most the law because of my job.. I install and service ignition interlock devices
OK. I just want you to have all the information.
I just did not know with my chargers
The charge does not matter. I've seen Murder, aggravated Sexual Assault, and almost every other type of charge transfered.
thanks so much
Glad to help.
Can I help you with anything else?
no sir that's it
OK. If I can't do anything else for you, please click ACCEPT.
Have a good evening.
