Probation Officer

Probation is a sentence which may be imposed by the Judge, often in conjunction with incarceration and fines.  It is a sentencing option for misdemeanors, but not all offenses qualify for probation.  Defendants placed on probation are required to follow all Orders of the Court.  The fee charged for reporting probation is $150.00.  The non-reporting probation fee is $120.00. 

Probationers must follow all General Conditions of Probation while under supervision:
