Probation is an alternative to jail time, or may follow jail time as ordered by the court. When you are put on probation, you are allowed to remain out in the community for a specified time period, generally under the supervision of a Probation Officer and with certain terms set by the court, which must be followed.
The main objective of probation is for the court to maintain authority over the individual, to control his or her behavior, and see that the probationer stays out of trouble. If you violate the terms of your probation as set by the judge, a warrant for your arrest may be issued and you may be removed from probation and ordered to serve out the remainder of your sentence in jail.
