Sentenced To Probation? You Are Responsible To Follow Your Court Order.
Many people who are convicted of a crime are given the option of a probation sentence over prison time. Probation offers an opportunity for an individual to get treatment, rehabilitation, education and employment. Probation comes with strict guidelines and conditions that must be followed. If the terms are violated, a person risks losing the benefit of probation and could end up serving time in prison.
There are different levels of supervision conducted by a probation officer. There are also various specialized programs, including intensive probation supervision, drug programs, sex offender programs, mental health programs and domestic violence supervision, among others. Appointments with a probation officer must be kept and the conditions of court orders — which often include drug or alcohol treatment — must be met. If a person on probation misses appointments with their probation officer or fails to comply with the court order, their case will be returned to court for a probation violation hearing.
