Probation is often included in a criminal sentence. Probation is usually given an individual in lieu of jail time where part of or no sentence has been completed. It is expected during this time that certain terms will be adhered to. If they are not, the individual on probation risks having to serve the original sentence.
There are two types of probation which may be granted: formal and informal probation. Formal probation requires regular meetings with a probation officer along with other stipulations. Informal probation requires the completion of certain terms but no meetings with a probation officer are necessary.
