Understanding the difference between parole and probation

Maryland residents who have been charged with a crime may be wondering about the definition of two important legal terms: probation and parole. Criminal defense attorneys know that these two concepts are very different, even though they both feature a form of supervised release. Understanding probation and parole rules can help you and your attorney identify the best strategies for defending your criminal case.

Marijuana possession leads to probation violation

Official documents show that a legal authority in the state faces a probation violation hearing related to drinking and driving. If he is found guilty, the defendant faces two months in jail. In 2003, defendant was found guilty of another DUI and was also placed on probation for that offense. The defendant is appealing a court decision related to his probation because the judge denied him probation before judgment. He was convicted of marijuana possession in November 2012, which led to the current probation violation.
