Am I eligible for probation? | San Diego Criminal Defense Attorneys

San Diego Criminal Defense ProbationProbation is the suspension of the imposition or execution of a sentence and the order of conditional and revocable release of the convicted defendant from custody under the supervision of a probation officer.

Another words, you will not be going to jail/prison for your crime, instead you will be released with certain court imposed conditions. If you violate those conditions, you might be sentenced to jail/prison term. Probation is not a right, but an option that rests within the discretion of the court.
