Probation means serving an amount of county jail time, if any at all, less than the maximum allowed by law, and complying with court orders for a period which often varies from 12 months to 60 months, depending on the charges. During the probationary period, you must comply with the Court’s orders or else you could be sentenced on a “probation violation” of up to the maximum for the charges you’re on probation for. At the end of the probationary period, your case is over and you are not subject to a probation violation.
