Probation is an alternative to jail time. It is designed to test the behavior of convicted offenders and their ability to become law abiding citizens of society. Probation usually requires the offender to adhere to specific conditions set by the court and usually includes supervision by a probation officer. It is important to follow the terms of probation because of the severe penalties imposed when the terms are broken. Terms of probation can include community service, counseling or drug and alcohol classes, periodic drug testing, and regular meetings with the probation officer.
When a judge grants probation, he or she will lay out a set of guidelines that you must follow and abide by at all times. If you follow all probationary guidelines set forth by the judge, you will be permitted to continue serving out your probation at home. However, if you commit a probation violation, the judge will summon you back to court and you could be sent to jail. Some probation offenses can include the following:
The terms of your probation are mandatory, and you must abide by these rules at all times. If you have committed a probation violation, a judge will issue a bench warrant in your name, the court may decide to revoke your probation altogether. You may even be sent back to jail.
If the judge determines that you did violate your probation, you may face very serious consequences. Penalties include more prison time that may even exceed the original sentence for which they were on probation. The prosecutor will also make a recommendation to the court on the probation violation, and this may further compound your peril.
