What does "probation" mean?

Probation is a judge placing limitations on your behavior for a period of time as part of your sentence. These limitations can include your having to do work in lieu of jail, pay a fine, and in the case of DUIs, attend and complete a DUI class.

Probation is either informal (99.9% of misdemeanors) or formal (probation officer). Informal probation means that a judge ordered you to lead a law abiding life and to follow all terms of probation without the supervision of a probation officer.

To learn more about your probation status, please review the paperwork that you received from the court. Typically after being sentenced, a person receives a piece of paper called "terms and conditions of probation." The "terms and conditions of probation" document will contain information about whether you received probation, the length of your probation period, the amount of fines owed, the dates by which the fines must be paid, the amount of community service/work/jail time that you must do, and other orders made by the sentencing judge.

If you no longer have your "terms and conditions of probation," you may contact the clerk of court (criminal division) where you were sentenced to obtain a copy of the terms and conditions of probation.
