Types of Probation

There are many different types of plea negotiations that may end with you being on probation.  It is important that you know what the potential consequences are if you are found in violation of your probation.  Prior to resolving your case, you should talk to your attorney to know exactly the punishment you will be facing.  Obviously, if you are on probation, the best scenario is for you to finish probation and be terminated successfully.  However, you should be aware of the potential penalties you may face in case you violate the terms of your probation.

When you are in court, you must deal with a lot of different distractions.  You may want to resolve your case quickly so you can leave the court house.  You may want to be released from custody and plead out to probation without knowing what you are doing.  It is important that you are aware of the type of plea deal you are taking.  Taking your time at resolving your case correctly may save you a lot of time later on in jail.

Here are some different types of probation that you may face:

First, straight probation is the easiest type of probation to understand.  If you plead out to straight probation and successfully complete probation, then your case will be terminated.  If you violate the terms of your probation and found in violation then the judge can revoke your probation.  After the judge revokes your probation, you could face a fine or incarcerated in jail for any term up to the maximum penalty.
