Probation in Texas: Anything Goes

This Dallas Morning News article in which Minnesota CrimProf Kevin Reitz is quoted describes two probationers supervized by the same judge.  One was convicted of robbery, got probation, failed a drug test and was resentenced to life.  The other was convicted of murder, failed five drug tests while on probation and was given reduced conditions of probation.
