Probation provides basic community supervision to offenders receiving a suspended sentence from the Court. Probation is a judicial act of grace or clemency that allows a person convicted of a crime to avoid imprisonment. Offenders are classified based on their need for services and supervision, and their risk of committing new offenses. The maximum duration of probation cannot exceed five years by law and offenders must pay a supervision fee of up to $100 per month, based on a sliding scale determined by monthly income. Special conditions may be imposed to further restrict freedom, limit movement in the community, add further punitive measures, or to require rehabilitative services. Violation of any of the standard or special conditions of probation may result in the imposition of additional punitive sanctions, up to and including revocation action by the Court.
