Probation sentence

Probation sentence – this term is used in the area of Criminal Trials, where details the end of a judgment being a kind of punishment given out as part of a sentence which means that instead of jailing a person convicted of a crime, a judge will order that the person, called “probationer” reports to a probation officer (called somewhere “community supervising officer”) regularly and according to a established schedule. It is a criminal offence not to obey a probation order and is cause for being immediately imprisoned. If someone is “on probation”, that means that they are presently under such a court order. These orders may have special conditions attached to them such as not to leave the city, drink alcohol, consume drugs, not to go to a specific place or contact a certain person. Depending of the local legislation, the probation sentence could have the role of a suspended sentence.
