About Community Supervision and Corrections Department

What is Community Supervision?

According to Section 2, Article 42.12 under the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, "Community Supervision" means the placement of a defendant by a court under a continuum of programs and sanctions with conditions imposed by the court for a specified period during which: (A) criminal proceeding are deferred without an adjudication of guilt; or (B) a sentence of imprisonment or confinement, imprisonment and fine, or confinement and fine, is probated and the imposition of sentence is suspended in whole or in part.

When an offender charged with a serious offense, whether it is a felony or misdemeanor, and appeared before the court, the judge will determine in a criminal proceeding whether to place him or her on community supervision depending on the degree of offense. The terms of a community supervision can range from 6 months to 10 years.
