When an individual is assigned probation, either as an alternative to jail time or after serving a shortened sentence, he or she is being given an opportunity. Along with that opportunity there are a number of strict rules and regulations which must be followed or else you will be facing a probation violation, which could very easily lead to your immediate incarceration, the cancellation of your probation, heavy fines and other penalties. Probation stipulations commonly involve not committing any new criminal offenses, reporting in to your probation officer at the pre-arranged times and locations, attending and completing your assigned community service and/or substance abuse treatment programs, paying the restitutions and fees you are required to pay, and passing all drug and UA tests.
