Defense for Cleveland Probation Violations
Understanding Probation and Community Control Sanctions
In cases in which a judge finds a defendant to be guilty of a felony crime
but chooses to show some leniency, the judge may place the convicted offender
on community control sanctions in lieu of jail or prison time, or community
control sanctions could be imposed after serving some period of incarceration.
The offender will be able to return home and continue to live with a degree
of freedom as long as they comply with all of the terms of their community
These terms generally include:
- Regular reports to a probation officer
- Remaining within a certain radius of a fixed geographical point
- Completion of education
- Finding and keeping steady employment
- Avoiding any further criminal charges or convictions
- No use of illegal substances
For misdemeanor offenses, probation could be imposed in lieu of jail time,
and frequently is. Any violation of the terms of your probation can mean
that an arrest warrant is issued, and you can be picked up any place,
any time and taken into custody. If convicted of violating your community
control sanctions or probation, you could be required to serve the remainder
of the sentence you originally avoided, with added time for the violation.
