  • What is the difference between probation and parole?

    Both probation and parole aim to break the negative habits of the offender. However, both of these rehabilitating processes have different goals and regulations. Parole generally aims to reintegrate the offender back into society. For example, if convicted of child molestation the defendant may be placed on parole with the requirement that he or she remain away from schools, parks, playgrounds, and anywhere where children may be at play.

    If the individual is on probation, he or she is likely subject to the jurisdiction of the court. Essentially, the judge has the right to modify or amend predetermined conditions at any time. Even though the individual was not sent to jail, the defendant is still subject to some similar conditions, curfews, requirements, and/or programs. While on probation, defendants may be required to pay for the following:

    • Fines
    • Court costs
    • Restitution
    • Court appointed attorney fees
  • What is the difference between a felony charge and a misdemeanor charge?

    A felony is a serious criminal charge that carries a sentence of more than one year in jail or prison. Misdemeanors are also criminal charges that carry a penalty of a year or less in jail. Both misdemeanor and felony charges remain on the offender's criminal record for life. Penalties for such charges vary in degree depending upon circumstances surrounding the offense. It is important to understand that a violation is not a criminal charge but can carry a sentence. Violation convictions are generally on a sealed record but may be indicated on employee or educational applications.
