In Adult Court law, probation is a suspended sentence. The Court requires that an offender be supervised by a probation officer for a specific period of time, usually three years. If the offender violates probation, the Court may impose the sentence the law prescribes for the crime(s) committed. It may mean prison for a felony or up to one year in jail for a misdemeanor law violation. The Court may impose certain requirements be fulfilled before probation can expire. Those "conditions of probation" may include a jail sentence, a fine, victim restitution, drug testing, completion of a treatment program, etc.
