Probation / Parole

The probation officer supervises those defendants that are on supervised probation and also monitors unsupervised probation cases to determine if defendants have completed probation requirements in a timely manner.

General supervised probation requirements
Probation requirements may vary based upon the offenses the defendant's convictions and the needs of the defendant.  Generally, supervised probationers will be required to do the following:
  • Refrain from violating the law
  • Pay fines and costs in a timely manner
  • Serve any jail time as directed by the court
  • Complete any treatment ordered by the court
  • Meet with the probation officer
  • Provide updated address and employment information.
Unsupervised Probation
In most cases, the defendant's probation will be unsupervised.  The defendant will be required to:
  • Refrain from violating the law
  • Pay fines and costs in a timely manner
  • Serve any jail time as directed by the court
  • Complete any treatment ordered by the court
Terms of Probation
Probation terms are generally one (1) year.  The probation term may be longer if the defendant will need additional time to complete treatment or to pay fines and costs.

The court generally requires that treatment be completed through a court-approved, certified provider.
