Probation is often used in criminal proceedings as an order imposed by a court in lieu of incarceration. Individuals on probation have typically been convicted of a crime and have served a partial sentence in jail or none at all. Probation typically means that the individual is allowed to remain free, but must follow rules and regulations in order to stay out of jail.

An individual who violates the conditions of his or her probation may find their probation revoked and may face a lengthy incarceration. For more information on probation and probation violation, contact Austin criminal defense attorney Ian Inglis at (512) 472-1950 today.
