Parole & Probation Archives

Probation sentences aren't without strict rules

When a person finds out that he or she will have to serve probation instead of being sent to prison, he or she might assume that he or she got the easy way out. Certainly, probation is easier since you don't have to spend time in prison. What you must know is that probation comes with some very strict rules that you must follow.

Understand the severity of a probation or parole violation

We recently discussed the expectations of someone who is on probation or parole. These expectations aren't suggestions that are optional. Instead, they are necessary requirements that you must comply with if you are going to successfully complete the program. We know that things sometimes happen and you might accidentally end up breaking the rules that govern the probation program.

Know what is expected of you when you are on probation

Being convicted of a crime places you in a difficult position. There are some cases where you might not be sentenced to spend time in jail or prison. Instead, you could be given probation. A sentence of probation means that you can remain free in the community while you serve your sentence.

All criminal charges demand action, even probation violations

We recently discussed how drunk driving charges can have a negative impact on your probation status. This is only one aspect of your life that you must be sure to think about when you are on probation. There are conditions for every probation program that you must comply with or you run the risk of facing violations.

DUIs can have a negative impact on your probation status

When you are on probation, you have to abide by specific conditions of the program. Making sure that you follow the program rules is one way that you can make sure that you get off paper on schedule. One way that you can affect your probation status is getting another criminal charge, such as a drunk driving charge.

Don't let a slip up affect your parole and fresh start

We recently discussed how job hunting is a difficult task for person who has the label of felon. For the men and women who have served their time in prison and are trying to get back on the right path, being on parole is another factor that might hurt job prospects. In all of these cases, it is important to remember that the ultimate goal is to be reliant on yourself and to live a life on the right side of the law.
