Canton Probation Violation Lawyer
Defense Attorney Protecting Your Rights in Canton & Marietta
Probation is a part of sentencing by a judge following a criminal conviction. A judge may order the defendant to a probation term instead of a jail sentence or may order probation in addition to jail time. Probation is a jail sentence, but a probationer is allowed to serve the time outside of jail. The probation sentencing would depend on many factors but mostly on the extent and seriousness of the crime. A first time offender convicted of a misdemeanor crime may have a short probation sentence.
A third time DUI offender may have an extended probation term. The terms dictated by the judge and according to the laws are specific and an individual on probation must abide by each term or face charges of probation violations.
