Probation is a legal punishment often given to first-time, non-violent offenders who plead guilty to or are convicted of a crime.  Probation allows for eligible offenders to minimize jail time by complying with certain rules and conditions imposed by the court.  The terms and length of probation can vary from case to case and are contingent on following all of the prescribed terms while not committing additional crimes.  Violating the terms of probation can land a defendant in jail, sometimes up to the maximum jail sentence allowed by the law.  Criminal defense lawyers will usually seek probation whenever possible to keep their clients from serving time behind bars.
