Just to be clear, your PO in South Carolina was going to contact the State of Texas, about this?
So what did he mean when he told you that he was going to leave it up to the Texas courts?
Thank you. This is something that would be a technical violation and if he did not violate you, he may have just said that, leaving it up to the State of Texas, to look into and discover. If there was a violation, you would know, as he would have a warrant issued or ask that you turn yourself in. If he is going to leave it up to the court, then he MAY report what happened and wait to see if they are going to do anything and if this "violation" amounts to something that is willful and wanton. Moreover, the violation has to be intentional. If you did not know and were misinformed, then it is very possible the court will not take any action
Yes, that is correct. He would need to violate you and then if violated, you would have to answer to the court and address the violation. What I shared with you is what MAY be going on. Just because he allowed you to leave, does not mean he is not going to report this, as he has a legal obligation to do so.
Yes, so it would appear that he did report this, to see what they want to do. I do not think that response means he is not going to violate you but going to report it, which he has a duty to do and then let the Texas court decide.
For something like this, I do not. I say this because it is a technical violation and you have an explanation for it and it was a misunderstanding and you did not try and violate, doing something which you knew was wrong.

If you start paying the restitution, then it should not be an issue. Unless he can show and prove that you are paying for the car and not your mom, it does not matter if she wanted to get you a vehicle.
The issue is only if what happened/what you did, would be considered a violation. If you remedy it and close it or pay it off, it could be a mitigating factor to show you corrected the problem but would not be a legal defense.
