The legal definition of probation is “The release into the community of a defendant who has been found guilty of a crime”. (Lectric Law Library's Lexicon) Probation is often given in lieu of a stent in jail. This is used to give people a second chance. If the terms of probation are violated the said person may then be given the jail time they were released from. Probation allows a person to stay in the community, thus keeping their jobs and being a productive member of society. A person who is given probation is most likely a first or second time offender, or the crime committed is considered to be a lesser one. Generally when someone is given probation they are making a contract with the state. By singing this contract they agree to abide by a special set of rules and regulations in order to keep their freedom. The standard in which a person on probation lives by is harder than a normal person.
