Probation in Oklahoma
Probation is a way for a person to be legally rehabilitated without going to jail. In almost every situation, probation is a favorable outcome when compared to incarceration.
Rules of Probation
Probation relies on the person’s cooperation and willingness to limit their own behaviors in accordance with the law.
- Community service may be a required part of probation.
- Meetings with a probation officer may also be required.
- Use of illegal drugs or drinking an excessive amount of alcohol can both be violations.
- A person under probation may also be required to avoid unsavory people or certain places that they frequented prior to the arrest.
Probations can either be closely supervised or be under more general supervision to ensure good behavior. If you or someone you know is facing a criminal conviction, probation is often the most desirable outcome. A person can live a very normal life while serving out probation.
Violation of probation can often mean that the person will serve the jail time that was promised at the sentencing. Violating probation is a serious offense and can have huge legal repercussions.
