When a person is convicted of a criminal offense and sentenced to time in jail or prison, he or she may be eligible for probation, providing that specific conditions and requirements are met.
Probation is the release of an offender from detention, subject to a period of good behavior under supervision
When probation is granted it is expected that the convicted person will adhere to these conditions. While on probation a person may be required to pay fines within a specific time frame, perform a set number of hours of public service work, attend court-ordered rehabilitative programs or services, commit no further crimes, and report in to a probation officer on a regular, pre-arranged schedule. Any violation of the terms of probation could lead an arrest, and the very real possibility that probation will be revoked. If that occurs, the person could face the jail time that was avoided by probation, with added time for the probation violation. We provide probation violation defense for our clients.
