Probation is taken seriously by the courts. It is not simply a slap on the wrist; it is a sentence handed down as punishment for a conviction of a criminal offense. A person convicted of a crime may be placed on probation after serving some jail time or in lieu of serving any time at all. Probation comes with many conditions attached and a probation violation often results in a term of incarceration.

There are alternatives to a further loss of liberty. You need an experienced and skilled criminal defense attorney to make them available in your case.
