About Probation in California
Probation can be ordered by the court to allow a person to remain out of jail and in the community under supervision by a probation officer.
Each individual's probation varies depending on the severity of the crime and any past criminal convictions. Probation may require counseling, and include restrictions on activities and frequent reports to a probation officer.
Because the purpose of probation is to incentivize lawful behavior and protect public safety, probation violations can result in serious penalties. Our Ventura criminal defense lawyers can help you avoid extensive incarceration, heavy fines and other consequences of violating probation.
