Probation is a supervisory sentence that a judge can institute in place of a formal jail or prison sentence. A probation term can vary in length depending on the severity of the crime you committed. The judge can impose probation on either a misdemeanor or a felony conviction and the term is usually accompanied with a checklist of rules of what you can and cannot do during the duration of the term.

If during your probation term you break the law or don’t follow the rules of your probation then you will likely serve jail time. If you violate your probation you will need a criminal defense attorney to represent you for your Probation Violation Hearing and the subsequent events of your charges.
