What Is Probation?
Probation is a sentence imposed by the court as a jail or prison alternative. As part of a probation sentence, an offender is released either to a home, an approved residence, half way house or residential treatment facility. As a condition of release, the offender agrees to abide by certain rules and follow specific guidelines. These guidelines are traditionally referred to as the “conditions of probation.” Based on the conviction or plea agreement, the terms of probation can vary greatly. The most common conditions of probation:
- Reporting monthly to a probation officer
- Payment of Court Costs and Restitution
- Drug Treatment
- Mental Health Counseling
- Community Service
- You must not associate with any convicted felon
- You must not commit any new crimes
- You must report any interaction with law enforcement
- You may not change your residence or leave the county without written permission from your probation officer.
If you are sentenced to probation, fortunately, you are allowed to continue to live in the community, as long as you follow the conditions and requirements of your probation. You will be closely supervised by a probation officer, who is tasked to make sure you follow the conditions of your probation. It’s best that during your period of probation, you follow every stipulation as well as keep open communication with your probation officer.
- Take Action
Failing to report a change of address is a violation, which may result in a revocation of probation.
