Probation is a tool that is used by the courts to craft sentences that truly address a defendant's crimes and that tries to address what that defendant needs to avoid committing a crime again. A key component of probation is that the defendant must plead guilty. That guilty plea and the threat of a more harsh sentence that is very likely to include jail act as the motivation for defendants to succeed in their completion of the terms of their probation.
Failing to successfully meet the terms of your probation will constitute a violation. If you have been found to have violated your probation, all sentencing options from your original trial are available to the judge.
