Adjudicated Probation Law & Legal Definition


Adjudicated probation means that there is a conviction. The accused is adjudicated guilty and placed on probation. A judge may order some form of community-based supervision for a specified period of time, based on such reasonable and lawful terms as the court may determine. While on adjudicated probation, the offender may be required to participate in any program deemed appropriate by the court.

When a court places a defendant on adjudicated probation, the court suspends the imposition of the sentence. Thus, no sentence is imposed on a defendant who has received deferred or adjudicated probation unless and until he is adjudicated or his probation is revoked.[Dunn v. State, 997 S.W.2d 885 (Tex. App. 1999)]
