Probation for DUI Offenders

Posted on:10/26/2012
Good-time reductions, indeterminate sentence, and parole concern the release procedures of prisoners. Probation, on the other hand, is a suspended sentence, which places the offender under supervision of the court.


Good-time reductions, indeterminate sentence, and parole concern the release procedures of prisoners. Probation, on the other hand, is a suspended sentence, which places the offender under supervision of the court. Like parole and its supporting measures, probation aims at rehabilitation of individual offenders, but it attempts to achieve the end by sparing the offender a term in prison. The legal basis for probation rests on the power of the courts to pass sentence and to exercise judicial clemency.

 

There is considerable difference between the legal enactment of probation and the actual use of and operation of probation. The laws did not make it mandatory on courts to use probation; they merely made it discretionary. Consequently, the use of probation depends largely on court organization and policy, and the extent of use varies widely by localities. On the other hand, the use and the operation of probation have depended on the extent to which local communities, counties, or states have provided for probation officers.

 

As in the instance of the application of indeterminate sentence, probation is most frequently granted in America to first offenders who have committed the less serious offenses. Even if it is your first offense, you will not be automatically entitled to probation. If the defendant is willing and able to make restitution to the victim of a property offense he is very likely to be given probation, since a prison sentence would, in most instances, preclude the giving of restitution to the victim of the offense.
