What is probation?

Probation is a sentencing alternative that allows a defendant who has been found guilty or pled guilty to a crime to be released into the community. A person can receive probation for a felony, misdemeanors, and certain driving offenses. The individual placed on probation is expected to comply with the conditions set out by the Court, and failure to comply can result in sanctions and/or incarceration.
