Individuals who have never committed a felony before are eligible for probation by the jury. Occasionally, the judge may issue probation for a repeat offender, but this is uncommon and doesn’t apply to every felony offense.
Probation is not an alternative to a guilty sentence. Instead, probation means you have been found guilty and sentenced to jail or prison. However, the judge has chosen to probate your sentence and let you do community service, provided you follow the terms of probation.
Probation requirements include checking in with your probation officer regularly, performing drug and alcohol tests, and more.
Probation can be revoked if you violate your probation requirements, such as failing a drug test, not meeting with your probation officer, or committing another crime.
Ultimately, your probation officer will decide whether to give you a warning or file a motion with the court to revoke your probation.
If your probation officer pursues probation revocation, you’ll have a probation revocation hearing where the judge will make the final decision without a jury.
If the court revokes your probation, you will be issued an arrest warrant.
