Alpharetta, GA. Attorney Scott Miller explains probation. Probation is a word that comes from Latin which means "to prove yourself".
This works in the court system as a way that the judge can sentence the defendant to a jail term, but suspends the jail confinement and places the individual on probation. The probationer then can serve his sentence in the community.
In misdemeanor offenses probation requires that a defendant complete prescribed safety courses of, driver safety, DUI, or community service.
While you are serving your probated sentence you must meet regularly with a probation officer.
