Decent Essays
According to Schmalleger, “probation is a sentence of imprisonment that is suspended” (p. 385). This is granted on a conditional basis by the judicial officer, and is contingent on meeting and maintaining certain requirements (Schmalleger, 2014). Certain misdemeanors that are nonviolent should be the only crimes utilized for probation. Some examples of acceptable misdemeanors would be disorderly conduct, receipt for stolen property, unlicensed driver, public drunkenness, illegal gambling, reckless driving, and exhibition of speed (‘California misdemeanor’, n.d.). Not all misdemeanors are acceptable this may vary. If I were a probation officer the types of conditions I would set for those I supervise would typically be mandated by jurisdiction.
