  • When a defendant receives a deferred or suspended sentence they may be placed on District Attorney’s probation and supervised for no more than five (5) years.
  • Non-violent crimes only can be placed on District Attorney’s probation.
  • The Rules and Conditions of Supervision Probation form must be used not a Department of Corrections probation form, even if it has a felony case number.
  • The defendant is supervised for the entire time of probation, not just until conditions are met.
  • When pleading a defendant in another courtroom besides Judge Hall, the defendant must be sent to our office to check in with the probation staff to do an intake.
  • If the defendant is in custody, he/she must report within 72 hours of being released from jail.
