Rather than giving a lengthy sentence, courts as a general rule, after a criminal pleads guilty or is found guilty by a jury, places the defendant on probation for a specific period of time, generally thirty six months (36). In return for being on probation, the court will impose certain conditions that the defendant must complete before the specified period of probation is complete.
When these conditions are met, then the criminal defendant owes no further obligations to the court. However, when the defendant does not complete or do what the court has ordered as part of the conditions of the probation, the defendant will be found to have violated probation and could suffer serious consequences.
Some of the conditions of probation may include:
attend certain classes
People who are on felony or misdemeanor probation who fail to comply with court ordered conditions of probation may face a revocation of probation which might result in jail or even state prison time.
